Further analysis by M. P. Candy and others suggested that an occultation by Pluto (cf. IAUC 3674) was unlikely, but that South America and southern Africa would be closest to the track. Monitoring by S. O'Meara and others at the Harvard College Observatory during Apr. 15.052-15.073 UT showed no occultation.
