Resumen

The occultation of the bright star π Arietis (HIP 13165) by the asteroid (828) Lindemannia was recorded by 10 observers in Texas on November 10, 2002. Clouds hampered many more potential observers. Nine disappearances, ten reappearances, and 2 near misses are reported. A least-squares fit to the data results in a 52.6 km × 50.8 km ellipse with the major axis oriented at a PA of 90.0o. However, deviations from a perfect ellipse were observed.
