Moon Occults Star - Northeastern Asia - Feb 7
      #5662504 - 02/04/13 09:16 PM

The 15% illuminated waning crescent Moon will occult magnitude +3.8 Mu Sagittarii for observers in northeastern Asia during the early morning of 2013 FEB 07. For those on the only graze path, the star will appear to wink on and off as lunar hills and valleys pass by. There will be a full occultation for folks north of the graze path. Immersion will occur on the lunar bright limb and emersion on the dark limb.

Iíve created a graze map, table of Besselian elements, and a Beijing preview graphic with data. They can be seen at my new webpage for occultations:

Photos and descriptions of the event would be welcome additions to this thread.
