Strike accuracy question

The circles are different sizes. What does this mean? Is the position of the strike calculated more accurately, the smaller the circle?

This is my first post, and I didn't see this addressed elsewhere. Confused

The short answer to your question is 'Yes'... the smaller the 'deviation' circle, the better 8 or more stations agreed on a 'location' based on GPS timing at stroke arrival at those stations.  The smaller the circle, the closer the timing computations resolve.  Not to be confused with the
"eye-candy" (if you will) moving thunder sonic front approximation (if enabled) on some 'real-time' maps...

Cheers!
