    Re: 1901 May, 22 Lunar example by French Navy Captain Arago

    An occultation will be visible from Washington next week on 21 March UT date. The star is 5.4 magnitude SAO 76215, VS 1321, HR1172. From new USNO at:

    77 3 55.8 W
    38 55 13.6 N
    90.8m

    I find, with no limb corrections, UT:

    my calc, USNO NOVAS/DE405 Imm 1 46 45 Emm 2 48 20
    Lunar Occultation Workbench 1 46 44 2 48 21


    with limb corrections:

    LOW 1 46 48 2 48 21
    Occult 4 1 46 49 2 48 20

    FORTRAN of my calc, LOW, and Occult 4 output attached.

    I will be out looking for it. (It's like a very accurate lunar distance.)

    (and thanks to M. Couette for the kind words!)
