Observers: 1 H Hekmat'zade,Dezful, Khozestan, Iran 2(P) Prediction, IOTA 5 Dec
The circle above is plotted at the expected 150 km diameter of Parthenope. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Hojatola was north or south of the central line of the event. However, assuming the updated prediction was approximately correct, the measured chord of about 140km would suggest that it might lie close to the central portion of the asteroid as shown. The DAMIT 3D model has been overlaid on the plot and shows reasonable fit to the 150 km circle.
