Station Map for the Occultation by (1082) Pirola at Wednesday, 2009 November 04 (~ 16:30 UT)

V-magnitude of target star TYC 6295-00097-1: 10.9 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.8
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.1 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 3.3 sec with a max drop of 2.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  16 deg and at azimuth 202 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -12 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 16 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.40 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 28 %
Path limits: ~  26 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 12 %
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 !
