Station Map for the Occultation by (993) Moutona at Wednesday, 2009 December 02 (~ 04:46 UT)

Trans-Atlantic Event!
Path will cross SE Canada and U.S.A. too.

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1338-00241-1: 10.5 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 10.1 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 2.2 sec with a max drop of 5.0 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 44 deg and at azimuth 254 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -22 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 2.77 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  14 %
Path limits: ~  14 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 7 %
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 !
