Genevieve occultation__ 2016 Jan 17


The circle above is plotted at the expected 40 km diameter of Genevieve. Given that the observed chord is longer than the expected diameter, it is strongly suggestive that Genevieve is either a significantly irregular in outline or there are other problems with the diameter estimate.

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