As the subsiding crescent moon rises in the little hours of the early morning of Tuesday, Feb. 18, skywatchers will be preparing for an unusual occasion. That early morning the moon glides in front of orange, starlike world Mars for viewers in much of main and eastern North America, in what is understood as an occultation.
Parts of the western and central U.S. and Canada will have the ability to view both the disappearance and reappearance of the Red Planet in a dark or twilight sky. From western Canada, the Pacific Northwest and northern portions of California and Nevada, only the end of the occultation will be seen, considering that Mars will currently be behind the moon when it rises around 3:30 a.m. local time. On the other hand, throughout the Eastern U.S., the world will both disappear and emerge after sunup.Under reasonably
dark skies, this occasion can be watched over western places with the naked eye or binoculars, although a telescope will offer the finest views. Over the Desert Southwest and parts of the Rocky Mountain States along and east of the Continental Divide, the whole occasion will take place under a dark sky, however will happen really low in the east-southeast; an open view of the horizon is needed. Right now, Mars is relatively faint at magnitude +1.2 and will be dimmed further by its low altitude, but it ought to not be hard to spot. Near and right away east(right)of a line extending approximately from Santa
Barbara, California to Idaho Falls, Idaho to Havre, Montana, the brilliant limb of the moon occults the world when it is still too low to see. Mars’reappearance from behind the moon’s dark limb will be much more observable, since the moon will be greater above the horizon and the planet will not be cleaned out by the crescent’s bright glare.Unlike the identify image of a star, which upon interaction with the moon appears to vanish or reappear as if you’ve clicked a switch, the larger obvious size of Mars triggers it to vanish or emerge more gradually. About 15 seconds must expire for the moon to completely cover(or uncover)the small disk of Mars after the edges of the two bodies appear to make contact. The duration will be somewhat longer for locations well to the north or south, where the occultation is not almost central. Mars presently shows a gibbous disk with an obvious diameter of 5.1 arc seconds. The very first speck of light from the Red World when it comes back from behind the moon will be at the moon’s
dark limb and can be found by an observer searching in the best place with a little telescope. Mars will emerge into view as a small, fantastic fiery blob– seemingly like a burst of lava from some fantastic lunar volcano. In order to assist observers prepare for where Mars will disappear(behind the moon’s bright limb)and reappear(from behind the moon’s dark limb), the accompanying diagram shows the apparent course of Mars as seen from various cities. The numbers define the cities as given in this list. For some locations(such as San Francisco, # 17), the disappearance will occur prior to moonrise, so its track left wing is not revealed. Harder farther east As one heads east, the occultation will happen after the break of dawn and the advance of morning twilight. Throughout the northern and main Terrific Plains, as well as the western half of Oklahoma and Texas, Mars will disappear in a dark sky, but golden
will be well advanced when it comes back. Binoculars or a telescope will be needed to see the emergence from behind the moon’s dark limb. From the Great Lakes, Greater Ohio Valley and the Deep South, Mars will vanish in a twilight sky and reappear after dawn. And for New England, upstate New york city, Toronto and Montreal, the greater New york city City area and New Jersey, Middle Atlantic Coast, Piedmont and Southeast Coast consisting of Florida, the entire occultation will be a daytime affair. Attempting to see the occultation from these regions will show
to be rather a challenge to state the least! Prior to dawn, you’ll see Mars sitting less than a couple of degrees to the left of the 24%lit up lunar crescent. Moving at roughly its own obvious size per hour, the moon will appear to slowly
creep closer to Mars as they gradually ascend and the background sky turns progressively brighter. With the naked eye
alone, you’ll probably lose sight of Mars about a half hour before sunrise, though it still ought to be readily visible through binoculars and small telescopes. To continue seeing it after daybreak however, will need an extremely clear(haze-free )day. The surface area brightness of Mars( quantity of light per square arc 2nd)is about equivalent to that of the moon. In the accompanying table, predicted times at 28 cities are given for this”Mars eclipse. ” Consisted of is whether the event in question takes place in a dark sky, at mid-twilight(30 to 60 minutes prior to sunrise ), intense twilight (30 minutes to simply a few minutes before daybreak), near sunrise( within a couple of minutes of sunup )and daytime(after daybreak).
For San Francisco and Seattle, where no time at all is noted under disappearance, that event occurs before moonrise.
