Primary diameter : 41.5 ± 1.5 km
Satellite expected diameter : 6.3 – 38.6 km
Expected maximum separation : 106 ± 34.7 km
If you are able to observe, please observe the occultation even if you are located OUTSIDE THE PATH (red lines), spanning the possible separation of the satellite from the primary. We recommend you to extend the observation at least 2 minutes before and after the nominal occultation epoch for your site AND don’t hesitate to use a very short exposure time if possible.
