Station Map for the Occultation by (2617) Jiangxi at Sunday, 2010 January 03 (~ 23:08 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 2456-00375-1: 11.2 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.7
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.5 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 4.7 sec with a max drop of 2.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  70 deg and at azimuth 107 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -67 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude W 02 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.31 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  30 %
Path limits: ~  28 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 12 %
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 !
