Station Map for the Occultation by (2235) Vittore at Sunday, 2009 September 27 (~ 02:19 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0718-00720-1: 9.2 mag
Spectral type: A2
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.1
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 9.2 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 2.6 sec with a max drop of 6.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 38 deg and at azimuth 114 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -39 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude W 02 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 1.98 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 20 %
Path limits: ~ 19 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 9 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 1 %
(Calculation according to Raymond Dusser, E.A.O.N. Circular #10)
PLEASE REMEMBER: Predictions are sometimes wrong. Please observe even with a small probability.
