The asteroid light curve was measured to be 5.216h
Followed the next month with a longer light curve of 5.276h, a margin of error that is not acceptable.
Attempt to confirm the correct light curve failed due to poor weather condition in the following month, dimming and change viewing geometry to polar aspect causing a considerable reduction in the lightcurve amplitude.
Shortening of the observing session also did not help.
