Station Map for the Occultation by (572) Rebekka at Thursday, 2009 October 01 (~ 20:28 UT)
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 30779321: 11.5 mag
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 11.7 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 4.8 sec with a max drop of 2.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 34 deg and at azimuth 175 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -30 deg. (At predicted centre line for latitude N 53 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 1.75 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 23 %
Path limits: ~ 22 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 10 %
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.
