High signal-to-noise ratio, moderate-resolution spectra, providing full phase coverage of the 19-d WC6 + OB binary θ Mus (WR 48, HD 113904), have been obtained and show dramatic variations of the C III λ5696 emission-line profile. We have modelled these line profile variations using a purely geometrical model which assumes that the emission arises from two regions, an optically thin spherical shell around the WR star and a cone-shaped region that partially wraps around the OB star. The cone…
