I have the IOTA Occult software installed, but it is slow and buggy on my system.
From the help manual, I figured out how to generate the world map, but unfortunately it doesn't show enough detail. Neither does In-The-Sky.
On Stellarium, the Lunar Occultation of Mars on December 7 of 2022 (USA Eastern Time) shows as being visible in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) but not visible in Cumberland (Maryland). I could keep trying random locations between Pittsburgh and Cumberland on Stellarium, but a more detailed map would be really helpful.
The option for "View in Google Earth" on Occult does not work.
Okay, what I did instead is "Save Google Maps HTM File" and that worked!! It looks like Marylanders will have to travel to the Uniontown-Johnstown-Altoona-State College line in Pennsylvania to see this occultation. I don't know what locations in Western Pennsylvania would be open to the public from 10 PM to 11 PM (USA Eastern Time) in December though to set up a telescope, though this will be visible without a telescope or binocular.
