Station Map for the Occultation by (615) Roswitha at Thursday, 2009 December 03 (~ 04:55 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 41155173: 11.7 mag
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 11.9 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 3.6 sec with a max drop of 2.9 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 29 deg and at azimuth 277 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -19 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.71 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  23 %
Path limits: ~  22 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 10 %
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 !
