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