A waning gibbous Moon will occult (cover) the magnitude +3.4 star Eta Leonis at nighttime for telescopic observers in eastern North America and western Europe during the night of 2021 DEC 23-24.

The immersion will occur on the lunar bright limb, with emersion from the dark limb. Lucky observers on a graze path can witness the star passing through lunar hills and valleys. Those between of the two graze paths will see a full occultation.

Photos and descriptions of the occultation 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.
