    Mr. Huxtable, you wrote:

    anywhere on Earth, but could be wrong."
    
    The occultation map of the 21Jan09 Moon-Antares event is given in the Online 
    Astronomical Almanac on the United States Naval Observatory website

    I was unsure of Mr. Dorl's position on the planet, and therefore uncertain as 
    to if he could see the occultation, as it covered the eastern Pacific Ocean, 
    central South America and the south Atlantic Ocean.
    
    As I believe you to be in the United Kingdom, a place which I visit frequently 
    with a great degree of pleasure, you will be most interested in the 21Oct09 
    Moon-Antares event, as the occultation is most certainly visible there.
    
    Best Regards
    Brad
