The Moon occults Aldebaran - April 18th 1999

On April 19th 1999 the Moon, seen from the United States, will occult the star Aldebaran (Alpha Taurus). Seen from Reunion Island only a wide conjunction will be visible the 18th of April (map below). I'll put a few pictures of this conjunction here on April 18th 16h00 UT.
