However, this conclusion neglects the reported 1 magnitude brightening between the averaged Oct. observations and
the averaged Nov. observations, which included corrections for helio- and geocentric distances and solar phase angle,
assuming isotropic uniform albedo and the canonical phase function slope value for cometary and D-class objects
of -0.04 magnitude per degree
