Occultation of the Beehive in Western Australia

On the morning of Thursday 25 September the Moon will pass in front of the Beehive cluster. The event starts around 4:30 am in the morning, with the Moon low on the north-eastern horizon. At 5:30 the Moon will be half-way across the Beehive, but dawn will interfere with viewing after this.

This event is best viewed in binoculars or a small telescope.
