Moon occulted by HIP 9948 01/30/2012 (photo and video)

On January 30, 2012, I caught in a video an occultation between HIP 9948 and the Moon. Star disappeared after the dark side of the Moon at 19:51:57. It was very cold outside. The temperature was -15 ° C.

HIP 9948 is 1874.46 years in light away from us, and is located in the constellation Aries.

An occultion is an event that occurs when an object is hidden by another object that passes between it and the observer. The word is used in astronomy. It can also refer to any situation where an object in the foreground, is blocking the view (masks) an object in the background.

Occultation term is most often used when the Moon passes in front of a star during its orbital motion around Earth. Events that occur on dark Moon edge are of particular interest for astronomical observers, because the lack of glare of the Moon allows these occultations to be more easily observed and timed.

Below are video captures.
