Event Details

Lunar occultation of Mars
Witness it live !

Dearest Astronomy Lover,

The Moon will pass in front of Mars, creating a lunar occultation visible from India.

Lunar occultations are only ever visible from a small fraction of the Earth's surface. Since the Moon is much closer to the Earth than other celestial objects, its exact position in the sky differs depending on your exact location on Earth due to its large parallax.

Amateur Astronomers Group, Pune brings you the opportunity to witness this event LIVE from our Facebook page.

Join us on Saturday - 17th April at 7:00 PM from our Facebook page.
Our experts will explain you the details about the phenomena, and answer your questions.

Mars will reappear from behind the Moon at 7:15 PM. Don't miss this rare astronomical event !
