The circle above is plotted at the expected 208 km diameter of Siegena. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Bill was north or south of the central line of the event. The Damit 3D model has been overlaid on the measured circle and the size adjusted to give approximately the same area.

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