Elektra occultation - 2013 July 10


The ellipse above is plotted at the maximum axis ratio as determined by lightcurve inversion data. The ellipse above ispositioned at the best fit axis to the ISAM Model. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Brian was north or south of the central line of the event. The /ISAM 3D model has been overlaid on the measured ellipse.

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