Station Map for the Occultation by (582) Olympia at Monday, 2009 November 23 (~ 17:40 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5767-01567-1: 11.1 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 11.0 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 1.9 sec with a max drop of 3.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 25 deg and at azimuth 211 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -21 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.05 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  37 %
Path limits: ~  33 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 13 %
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 !
