Station Map for the Occultation by (429) Lotis at Monday, 2011 December 05 (~ 01:27 UT)

V-Magnitude of target star TYC 0751-01199-1: 11.1 mag
Johnson B-V Colour Index: + 0.1
UCAC instrumental „pseudo-R“ fit-model magnitude: 11.1 mag (data from UCAC3)

The max duration is expected to be 8.5 sec with a max drop of 2.4 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 46 deg and at azimuth 170 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -52 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude 0 deg)

There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of  ± 0.45 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:

Centre line: ~ 74 %
Path limits: ~ 49 %
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 your station with OccultWatcher !
