Station Map for the Occultation by (429) Lotis at Wednesday, 2011 September 21 (~ 02:52 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 1319-01856-1: 11.5 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.0
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 11.1 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 3.2 sec with a max drop of 3.2 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 45 deg and at azimuth 113 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -23 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 15 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 0.70 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 53 %
Path limits: ~ 42 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 15 %
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.
