Station Map for the Occultation by (505) Cava at Sunday, 2009 November 29 (~ 01:41 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1422-00911-1: 10.3 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.9
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 10.0 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 8.0 sec with a max drop of 2.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 36 deg and at azimuth 118 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -43 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.30 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  91 %
Path limits: ~  50 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %

(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 !
