Station Map for the Occultation by (298) Baptistina at Thursday, 2009 November 05 (~ 17:39 UT)
V-magnitude of target star HIP 110375: 9.2 mag
Spectral type K2
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 8.6 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 2.3 sec with a max drop of 6.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 30 deg and at azimuth 156 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -13 deg. (At predicted centre line for latitude N 45 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 2.40 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 17 %
Path limits: ~ 16 %
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.
