Occultations of the planets by the Moon
for Israel



  • The occultation predictions are calculated for observer in Tel-Aviv.
  • For other places in Israel, the times are usualy good to about several minutes.
  • The times are given in TDT time scale - to convert to Israel local time add 2 hours and the difference between UTC and TDT (which in 2006 is about 66 sec).
