Station Map for the Occultation by (2067) Aksnes at Wednesday, 2011 November 16 (~ 21:47 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 5812-01158-1: 10.6 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.6
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 10.3 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 8.5 sec with a max drop of 6.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 14 deg and at azimuth 232 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -51 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 2.06 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 19 %
Path limits: ~ 19 %
1 sigma lines:  ~ 9 %
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 your station with OccultWatcher !
