  3(P) Prediction, 22 May


Dalera occultation - 2012 June 15


The circle above is plotted at the expected 15 km diameter of Dalera. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Dennis was north or south of the central line of the event. However, assuming the updated prediction was approximately correct the longer than expected chord of about 21 km would suggest that the chord might lie close to the central portion of the asteroid.

The figure below shows the Limovie/Tangra light curve of the occultation.
