Abstract: Simultaneous dual-wavelength observations by the KAO of a recent Chiron occultation provide a measure of the relative extinction efficiencies of particles near Chiron. This observation and Mie scattering theory allow us to constrain the size of grains causing the extinction of the starlight near Chiron.
