View Full Version : Moon Occults Beta Capricorni - Hawaii - April 4

2013-Mar-31, 03:43 PM
The 34% illuminated waning crescent Moon will occult the magnitude +3.1 star Beta Capricorni for observers in Hawaii during the predawn hours of 2013 APR 04. Immersion will occur on the lunar bright limb and emersion on the dark limb.

Iíve created a graze map, table of Besselian elements, and a Honolulu preview graphic with data. They can be seen at my webpage for occultations: www.CurtRenz.com/occultations
