2019 : Lunar Occultations of Planets, Minor Planets and Bright Stars

The table lists the occultations by the day of the month and the object name, which is the link to the map that shows the area of visibility of the occultation. Occultations are not tabulated if at conjunction the elongation from the Sun is less that 15°. The objects considered are the planets, indicated in bold, the bright stars Aldebaran, Antares, Pollux*, Regulus and Spica, and the 93 minor planets that are included in Section G of The Astronomical Almanac.

*The 5 bright stars are those that are typically considered in The Diary of Phenomena in Section A of The Astronomical Almanac. However, due primarily to precession, it is known that Pollux has not, nor will be, occulted by the Moon for hundreds of years.
