I like to get confirmation that my numbers are correct about today's 
occultation of Antares by the Moon.  It appears to be an almost a non-event 
event in Phoenix.  My program indicates it will begin 15 minutes BEFORE 
moonrise at about 6:49pm.  If this happened above the horizon it would be a 
cool event even in bright twilight or daylight.  Egress of Antares will be 
visible here at about 7:51 pm, almost 7 degrees above the horizon.
