Description

While the moon will block three planets: a rare occultation is about to occur.On September 18, the Moon will pass in front of three planets and one of the brightest stars in our night sky, all in less than 24 hours, marking a special lunar occultation. A concealment may sound like a creepy ritual, but it is actually just the term that astronomers use to denote that one celestial body is blocking another in the sky. And as for lunar occultations, this is a rare sight. The Moon will pass before Venus, so the first magnitude is Regulus, then Mars, and finally Mercury. As the Moon orbits our planet, it travels regularly in front of other objects in the sky, but it is rare to get a planetary alignment like this.The last time we had a lunar occultation of three planets within a 24 hour window was March 5, 2008 Mercury, Venus and Neptune, and it will not be until 2036 when we get another with three planets. And when it comes to Regulus, it is one of the four stars of first magnitude in our skies that can be hidden by the Moon the other three Aldebaran, Spica and Antares. #ymasciencia
