  2(P) Prediction, Personal 19 Aug


Leocadia occultation - 2013 August 19


The circle above is plotted at the expected 19 km diameter of Leocadia. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Brian was north or south of the central line of the event. The predicted path does not show, as this was a very small object with very high uncertainty, and is off the plot even when rolled up to the limits.

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