Station Map for the Occultation by (1639) Bower at Sunday, 2009 November 15 (~ 21:57 UT)

V-magnitude of target star TYC 2330-01747-1: 12.2 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.7
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 12.3 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 4.2 sec with a max drop of 1.7 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 63 deg and at azimuth 163 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -48 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.93 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  41 %
Path limits: ~  36 %
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 !
