Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 42371485 : 10.7 mag
Star not listed in UCAC3 !

The max duration is expected to be 12.1 sec with a max drop of 1.0 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 29 deg and at azimuth 75 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -27 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 20 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.51 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  67 %
Path limits: ~  48 %
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.
