My thanks to Mike Clarke for contributing this superb watercolour painting depicting the occultation of the magnitude +7.3 star TYC 5232-1728-1, which took place on Saturday 8th January at 16h 37m UT. Mike noted that “In spite of the very bright conditions the 7th magnitude star was extremely easy to see.” Click anywhere on the image to see Mike’s larger version. Read more
