What is an Occultation?

An occultation occurs when a solar-system body passes in front of a more distant object (e.g. a star or another solar system body), partially or totally hiding the more distant object and momentarily blocking its light. Each occultation can be seen only at the right time and from a limited part of the Earth.  Two basic areas of occultation astronomy:  

1. lunar occultations and   2. Asteroid occultations.
