Moon will occult Jupiter 18 Feb 2012

Postby Lert » Mon Feb 18, 2013 2:50 pm

Hi all

Tonight the Moon will pass in front of Jupiter. Disappearance of Jupiter will occur (for Perth) at 7.39pm and the planet will reappear at 8.45pm.

Should be an interesting sight in binoculars or telescope.
2006 - 543.5mm, 2007 - 701.5mm, 2008 - 833.5mm, 2009 - 579mm, 2010 - 631.5mm, 2011 - 872.5mm, 2012 - 770mm

It has also been pointed out that IF the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey were true, Jupiter would now be a star.
