Emanuela occultation - 2013 March 15


The circle above is plotted at the expected 86 km diameter of Emanuela. With one chord and a contraining miss and the longer than expected chord of about [len]km we can be sure that the chord lies close to the central portion of the asteroid.

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