Station Map for the Occultation by (278) Paulina at Saturday, 2009 November 14 (~ 02:26 UT)
Shadow crosses Canada and U.S.A. too.
V-Magnitude of target star HIP 22446: 8.6 mag
Spectral type G0
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.6
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 8.4 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 2.9 sec with a max drop of 5.3 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 57 deg and at azimuth 231 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -39 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.98 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 39 %
Path limits: ~ 35 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 14 %
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 !
