Victoria occultation__ 2016 April 3


There is a single shape model for (12) Victoria in the DAMIT database and it is shown above with Graemes observed chord placed centrally. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Graeme's chord should be central or not - the shape model would suggest that occultations of this duration are possible across much of the asteroid's profile.

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