Saaturn next to moon photo

An occulation occurs when planets are covered by the Moon. Recently outside of the US Saturn was about to cover the moon. Look at this great shot for May 26,2007. (if you get to spaceweather, and you are not on 5/26 goto archives)

Students will
(1) Learn about occulations and how they can help scientists and astronomers
(2) Determine what is the real size comparison of Saturn and our Moon
