Station Map for the Occultation by (1867) Deiphobus at Thursday, 2011 November 17 (~ 17:18 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0539-01224-1: 10.2 mag
Spectral type: F8
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.5
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 10.0 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 9.2 sec with a max drop of 5.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 44 deg and at azimuth 193 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -17 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 10 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.76 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 49 %
Path limits: ~ 41 %
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.
