Using MICA, I arrived at a slightly different start time for the occultation as seen from Alexandre's given location. The times I get are:
Start: 03:57:10 UT1 (16.134')
Minimum: 04:17:31 UT1 (12.184')
End: 04:37:24 UT1 (16.141')
Also, I get a SD of the Moon of 16'08.27" at the time of occultation. This differs from Paul's figure by -8.13". Using a time of 03:57:10 UT1 (March 4th 22:57:10 UT-5, my time zone) gives a pretty good match in Stellarium.
Incidentally, the IOTA bright star lunar occultation website gives a time of 03:56:48 UT1 for Indianapolis (line 391), exactly matching Alexandre's time.
