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.
Let other observers know about you observing plans: Announce you station with OccultWatcher !
