The circle above is plotted at the expected 139 km diameter of Hebe. With only one chord and a contraining miss by Brian we can be confident of the path of Hebe and that it was south of the predicted line. The ISAM 3D model has been overlaid on the circle.
The figure below shows the Limovie light curve of the occultation after Occlar analysis.
The drop was very short and should be treated with caution with a sharp D but slow R
Although this may be due to the grazing nature of the observation.
