    Moon occults Venus tomorrow morning
    From: Frank Reed

    Visible in North America west of a line running from about New Orleans towards 
    Cleveland (no luck for the east coast). This occultation starts in about nine 
    hours. Sorry for the late notice. This occurs in daylight from the Midwest, 
    but it will be clearly visible in binoculars or a small telescope, even a 
    typical sextant telescope. In California, the entire occultation happens 
    during morning twilight. It should be very pretty since the Moon and Venus 
    are both thin crescents right now.
    
    Note that the lines on the maps at the above web site are equivalent to "zero 
    distance" lunar lines of position. Shoot a Sun-Moon lunar at the same time 
    and you can get a second lunar LOP and thus a complete fix.
