I am sending for appreciation of you an image of the occultation of the star Antares for the Moon, occured yesterday, day 27 of August of 2009.
The event was visible only in a small part of Brazil .
Here, in Juazeiro do Norte, Ceará (in Brazil ) the star Antares did not want to deprive us of your beauty and hide behind the Moon.
Decided to share your walk with the Moon for awhile, to our admiration.
Mosaic composed of 7 images.
