My thanks to Mike Clarke (Retford, Nottinghamshire) for his image and report of an occultation event on the 22nd March 2010. Mike had been observing the Moon on this particular evening and spotted that a magnitude +7.12 star was on the path to be occulted by the dark lunar limb. He captured this 5 second exposure showing several stars (down to magnitude +10.19) close to the dark lunar limb prior to occultation.
