The circle above is plotted at the expected diameter of Klotilde. With only one chord it is not possible to determine whether Steve was north or south of the central line of the event, but he appears to have been close to it, which suggests the event was slightly north of the predicted path. The circle has been plotted on the observed chord.
The figure below shows the Tangra light curve of the occultation.
