The circle above is plotted at the expected 54 km diameter of Kathleen. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Dean was north or south of the central line of the event and Brian's observation is not close enough to constrain the solution so the circle has been plotted on the observed chord .
The figure below shows the Tangra light curve of Dean's observation.
