Station Maps for the Occultation by (578) Happelia at Friday, 2009 November 06 (~ 18:31 UT)


V-Magnitude of target star TYC 6922-00085-1: 11.4 mag
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 11.8 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 2.9 sec with a max drop of 2.6 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 20 deg and at azimuth 196 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -23 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 04 deg 1 min)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.59 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 61 %
Path limits: ~  46 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %

(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 !
