occultations of Antares?

Postby Graphis » Thu Jan 02, 2014 12:53 pm

Hi everyone,

Wondering if anyone can help me out here.

I'm interested in the lunar occultations of Antares. I know it happens on an 18-19 yr cycle, but the phase of the moon will vary. I'm interested in the occultation of Antares by a FULL moon. Anyone know how often this happens, and when the last one was?

And just checking I've got this right in my mind, for Antares to be occulted by a full moon, the sun needs to be in Taurus, right?

Many thanks for any help.
