Station Map for the Occultation by (2167) Erin at Friday, 2009 October 09 (~ 00:50 UT)

V-magnitude of target star HIP 5081: 5.6 mag
Spectral Type F4
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.4

The max duration is expected to be 1.0 sec with a max drop of 10.3 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  44 deg and at azimuth 213 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -35 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 4.51 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  9 %
Path limits: ~  9 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 5 %
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 !
