The 31% illuminated waxing crescent Moon will occult magnitude +3.1 Beta Capricorni during the evening of 2012 NOV 18 for many observers in Europe and North Africa.

I've created three related graphics: a graze map, a preview with data for Paris, and a table of Besselian elements. They can be seen at: www.CurtRenz.com/moon

Descriptions and photos of the event would be welcome additions to this thread.
