    Mars Occultation Feb 18 2020

    Looks like we're in for an interesting opportunity to see the moon occult Mars on the 18th of Feb.  Stellarium shows it happening at about 7:43 EST.  And Mars is about will be about 1.8 AU from earth, I think.  So, it probably won't be visible from the east coast... even with a modest telescope. And the edge of Mars being occulted at ingression will be the shaded limb, sort of making the actual instant less observable.  Is anyone who will be able to see it planning on using it as a lunar observation?
