Station Map for the Occultation by (530) Turandot at Monday, 2010 November 22 (~ 05:10 UT)

This occultation will be visible in Canada and NW U.S.A. too.

Magnitude of target star 2UCAC 37148522: 11.3 mag
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.5 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 9.9 sec with a max drop of 3.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 38 deg and at azimuth 245 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -18 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.46 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~  72 %
Path limits: ~  48 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 16 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 2 %

(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 !
