I was able to make a small contribution to observations made by Adrian Jones (UK) on the rotational light curve for this asteroid, requested by Toni Santana (PL) who is the project lead for Gaia-GOSA.  Although my contribution was small (2 nights interrupted by cloud !) points coincide with minimum and maximum (by chance).  Asteroid light curves are part way to understanding their 3D shapes, and timed occultations then help to refine dimensions.
