The 97% illuminated waxing gibbous Moon will occult stars of the Pleiades (M45) cluster for North Americans during the night of 2008 DEC 10/11. Immersions will occur on the dark limb and emersions on the bright limb.
Iíve created a graze map of the 21 brightest Pleiades stars. Observers on a starís graze path will be able to see that star winking on and off as lunar hills and valleys pass by. Those between a starís northern and southern graze paths will witness a full occultation. Note that some of the northern graze paths are in outer space above the North Pole.

Photos and descriptions of the event would be welcome additions to this thread. If you would like occultation or graze data for a specific location, please reply to this post with a longitude, latitude, time zone and elevation above sea level.
