A Bright Star Disappearing Behind Moon

An occultation occurs when a nearby celestial object passes in front of a more distant one and completely hides it from view. In a lunar occultation, the Moon passes in front of a star or planet. Lunar occultations of faint stars occur all the time, but they’re hard to see because the Moon’s light swamps dim objects. On the night of April 27th, 2024 the observers in the Southern part of India will see the Moon occult Antares, a 1st magnitude star in the constellation of Scorpius.
