The Moon, three planets, and a bright star gathered near the ecliptic plane in the September 18 morning sky over Veszprem Castle, Hungary.In this twilight skyscape, Mercuryand Mars still shine close to theeastern horizon, soon to disappear in the glare of the Sun.Regulus, alpha star of the constellation Leo, is the bright pointnext to a waning crescent Moon, with brilliant Venus near the topof the frame.The beautiful morning conjunction of Moon, planets, and bright starcould generally be followed by early morning risers all around planet Earth .But remarkably, the Moonalso occulted , or passed directly in front of, Regulus and each of thethree planets within 24 hours, all on September 18 UT. Visible from differentlocations, timing and watching thelunar occultations was much more difficult though, and mostly requiredviewing in daytime skies.
