Re: Aldebaran Disappeared Last Night


Hey Roy, 

Hope you both are doing well. I watched a handful of the "pre-show" stars get occulted and enjoyed helping my daughter watch one through my scope. Later I saw Aldeberan blink out in my 7x35 binoculars. Like you, the Moon went behind the trees around my home and made it impossible to see the reappearance.

Anyone else see the occultation last night?  I only caught the disappearance behind the dark limb of the moon at 11:06 pm.  The reappearance was too deep in the trees here by 11:37 or so.  Anyway it was fun to see the bright star suddenly wink out while I was watching with stabilized Canon 10x30 bino’s.
