Leonora occultation__ 20161114


The circle above is plotted at the expected diameter of Leonora. It appears from the miss that the centre line of the event was north of Steve's position, in turn north of the predicted path. The circle has been plotted to fit the observed chord.

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