Station Map for the Occultation by (344) Desiderata at Saturday, 2009 December 05 (~ 18:26 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0637-01168-1: 11.9  mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.9
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 12.3 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 13.6 sec with a max drop of 1.1 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 46 deg and at azimuth 121 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -25 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.46 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  73 %
Path limits: ~  49 %
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 !
