I missed the Occultation of Lambda Aquarii by Venus, but Tom Harradine didn't

I jinxed myself by not getting my travelling box of lenses and guff out of the cupboard and putting it on the bench the night before. But hey, I said, I'm not driving, so I have plenty of time to open the cupboard and walk to the back yard. Pah! So I missed wake up time (heck I missed my normal work wakeup time) and missed the occultation of lambda Aquarii by Venus.

But Tom Harradine didn't. Here is his shot of the star emerging from behind Venus, and a nice video of the star emerging.
