Size and orientation of 1-sigma uncertainty ellipse
Short axis : Size = 6.010419E-02 (arcsec); Direction =  -0.06740  0.99773
Long axis : Size = 6.283884E-02 (arcsec); Direction =   0.99773  0.06740
The confidence boundary shown below has been computed using the linear theory.

The line segment extending from the center to the edge of the plot represents the direction of apparent motion.

The raw data for this plot (same scale and axes) are given below:
