At left is an unprocessed image of the asteroid Kalliope with its satellite Linus not easily visible taken with the Air Force Research Laboratory's Starfire Optical Range telescope at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico on November 29, 2021 . At right, after fitting Kalliope as a Lorentzian and subtracting the model, Linus shows up in the residuals as a bright spot below where Kalliope was before subtraction. North is up and East is to the left. The scale in km is at the distance of the asteroid. (Image/Starfire Optical Range)
