The Observers Handbook has the moon occulting Tau-tauri at 10:40.2 utc at my location(Atlanta circle) which is 6:40 am est. local.  My Starry nights program has the moon occulting it at 5:27 am est and Tau-tauri will be in view again at 6:29 am. My location is close to the edge off the Miami circle about 25 miles away. 

Which is correct?

The Observers Handbook times are computed via the Occult software authored by David Herald. They are the correct times.
