watch pi disappear

I sent out a note to the RASC Toronto Centre listserv to remind people of the lunar occultation of π (pi) Sagittarii. The magnitude 2.9 star will be occulted by the Moon tonight at approximately 10:12 PM. If you have a good southern view, enjoy the star disappearing along the dark edge of the Moon. If you hang in for the whole show, the star will reappear around 11:09 PM.
