The Moon will occult Saturn in the evening of Feb 20 for North America. The dark limb will take about 80 seconds to cover Saturn. http://www.lunar-occultations.com/iota/0221dlocal.htm will give you the time at which Saturn begins to disappear from your location (0h UT is midnight Greenwich or 7pm EST). http://www.lunar-occultations.com/iota/0221rlocal.htm gives the reappearance times. If you are lucky enought to be in the graze path (http://www.lunar-occultations.com/iota/0221gpm.gif, http://www.lunar-occultations.com/iota/0221gpred.htm) then with good seeing, a good scope and high power you may get a chance to see lunar mountains in relief against the planet's disk and rings!- Joe
