Station Map for the Occultation by (2929) Harris at Thursday, 2009 November 05 (~ 04:49 UT)
V-magnitude of target star TYC 0278-00741-1: 8.9 mag
Spectral type K0
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.0
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 8.6 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 0.7 sec with a max drop of 8.5 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 23 deg and at azimuth 102 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -24 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude W 05 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 3.63 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 11 %
Path limits: ~ 11 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 6 %
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.
