Station Map for the Occultation by (96) Aegle at Tuesday, 2009 September 08 (~ 20:44 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0568-00661-1: 10.5 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.4
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 10.23 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 10.9 sec with a max drop of  2.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 36 deg and at azimuth 123 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -27 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.20 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  99 %
Path limits: ~  50 %
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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
