Station Map WEST for the Occultation by (1442) Corvina at Tuesday, 2009 October 06 (~ 00:08 UT)


V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0001-00563-1: 10.3 mag
Spectral type: F8
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.4
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 10.2 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 1.6 sec with a max drop of 4.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  44 deg and at azimuth 205 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -50 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 2.34 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  17 %
Path limits: ~  17 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 8 %
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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
