2014 BRIGHT STAR OCCULTATIONS


All times given in these predictions are in Universal Time. Predictions included both disappearance and reappearance times, although depending on the phase of the moon, one or the other may not be possible to observe at the instant of the event. When Moon % is "+" (waxing), the star will disappear on the dark side (DD), and reappearance is on the bright side (RB); when the Moon % is "-" (waning), the star will reappear on the dark side (RD), and disappearance on the bright side (DB). Observing disappearances and reappearance of stars on the bright side are difficult, and accuracies in timing these events are not reliable.

Note: Cities will be prefixed with their 2 letter country code. Those for the United States will also include the 2 letter state code after the city. For a complete listing of the 2 letter country codes used in the predictions please download this PDF file for reference.

If there are no predications with the accompanying map of coverage, it is because it is either a daytime event, or in sparsely located regions where cities in the Occult database do not exist

The world map is a Mercator projection showing the basic circumstances of an occultation:

  • Cyan - the curves of Occultation D or R at moonrise or moonset
  • White continuous line - the northern and southern occultation limits (graze paths), with the event occurring in nighttime
  • Blue continuous line - occultation limits, event in twilight
  • Red dotted line - occultation limits, event in daylight

Where a line represent a feature of the event is located in the polar regions, remember that the Mercator projection gives rise to serious distortions in polar regions.
