Your kudos is misplaced, I fear. This is a screenshot from an astronomny program called Starry Night. It's 'real time' in the sense the occultation progresses at the same rate that the actual occultation progresses. The backround skylight is also accurate as the program factors that in. I hope you understand this. It's a computer simulation. If you confused it with a video taken through an actual telescope, I will definitely pass your note on to the good people at Starry Night who will be flattered by the confusion.
