Station Map for the Occultation by (363) Padua at Wednesday, 2010 October 20 (~ 02:17 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1942-00823-1: 9.4 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.5
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 8.8 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 3.5 sec with a max drop of 5.1 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 38 deg and at azimuth 100 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -34 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.75 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 50 %
Path limits: ~ 41 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 15 %
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.
