According to my Stellarium program, the moon will pass in front of the third magnitude star Beta Capricornus around 9:30 pm eastern time on 10/12/. Unfortunately from my backyard it will be too low. Gerry

That's been discussed for a while in my thread in this forum titled "International Observe the Moon Night - Occultation": http://www.cloudynig...6059128/page...
