Station Map for the Occultation by (1159) Granada at Wednesday, 2010 October 13 (~ 18:50 UT)

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 40630196: 11.5 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.2 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 2.7 sec with a max drop of 3.3 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of  29 deg and at azimuth 85 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -20 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.17 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  33 %
Path limits: ~  30 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 13 %
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 !
