Station Map for the Occultation by (615) Roswitha at Thursday, 2009 November 19 (~ 03:46 UT)

Trans-Atlantic Event!
Shadow path is crossing Canada and U.S.A. too!

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 41157396: 10.9 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.0 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 4.4 sec with a max drop of 3.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 56 deg and at azimuth 253 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -31 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.73 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  52 %
Path limits: ~  42 %
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 !
