Station Map for the Occultation by (708) Raphaela at Friday, 2011 April 01 (~ 21:04 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1871-00946-1: 10.1 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.2
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 10.1 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 1.0 sec with a max drop of 5.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 32 deg and at azimuth 271 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -26 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 1.21 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 21 %
Path limits: ~ 20 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 10 %
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.
