Thermal-IR fluxes of asteroid 7343, corrected to mid-observation time and light-time corrected. 11.52 μm observations were interspersed with the other filters to detect a partial thermal-IR lightcurve, likely primarily caused by a changing projected area. It can be seen from the 11.52 μm fluxes that there is an increase in brightness between  ≈0.17 and  ≈0.22 days. A lightcurve correction of the fluxes was performed by subtracting the difference between a linear interpolation between the 11.52 μm fluxes and the mean 11.52 μm flux. The 12.47 μm fluxes were assumed to be at the same brightness as the last 11.52 μm observation, and the second 8.70 μm observation is removed from the lightcurve-corrected dataset as it was taken too long after the 11.52 μm fluxes to be corrected in this manner.
