Station Map for the Occultation by (2617) Jiangxi at Wednesday, 2010 January 06 (~ 19:38 UT)
Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 43608980: 12.7 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 12.9 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 4.7 sec with a max drop of 1.5 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 44 deg and at azimuth 83 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -39 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 1.62 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 24 %
Path limits: ~ 23 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 11 %
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.
