Station Maps for the Occultation by (788) Hohensteina at Tuesday, 2009 August 18 (~ 01:30 UT)
WEST and EAST
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 30929281: 12.5 mag
The max duration is expected to be 7.7 sec with a max drop of 0.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 31 deg and at azimuth 229 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -26 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.59 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 61 %
Path limits: ~ 46 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %
(Calculation according to Raymond Dusser, E.A.O.N. Circular #10)
PLEASE REMEMBER: Predictions are sometimes wrong. Please observe even with a small probability.
