Station Map for the Occultation by (1520) Imatra at Thursday, 2010 November 04 (~ 01:26 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0797-01031-1: 9.8 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 1.1
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 9.4 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 3.3 sec with a max drop of 6.0 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 25 deg and at azimuth 116 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -41 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 1.36 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  29 %
Path limits: ~  27 %
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 !
