Moon Occults 2 Gemini Stars - 2020 FEB 05-06

Recommended Posts

The waxing gibbous Moon will occult (cover) the stars Eta Geminorum (Mag +3.3) and Mu Geminorum (Mag +2.9) during the night of 2020 FEB 05-06. The former event will be observable at night from the eastern half of North America and Western Europe. The latter from the northern half of North America.

The upcoming immersions will occur on the lunar dark limb and emersions on the bright limb. Any observers on a graze path can witness a star winking on and off as lunar hills and valleys pass by. Those between the two paths will see a full occultation.

Photos and descriptions of the occultations would be welcome additions to this thread. If you would like specific occultation or graze predictions for your location, please reply to this post with your longitude, latitude, elevation and time zone.
