    Lunars: Venus occultation
    From: Herbert Prinz
    Date: 2001 Jul 16, 10:59 AM

    Those of us who want to practice their skills in taking lunar observations -
    AND live in the right part of the world (!) - will get a special treat
    tomorrow:
    
    On July 17, around 19 UT1 there will be an occultation of Venus by Moon. Of
    course, the exact timing of the associated phenomena, and whether you can
    observe them at all, depends on your location. I am afraid our friends in
    Europe will be out of luck. Moon and Venus will set there before things get
    interesting.
    
    There should be no problem for daylight observation in the Americas with small
    telescopes or even binoculars and sextants.  The sun will be over 40 deg away.
