Fascinating! Will you be in the tri-state area on March 20? "Live in the New York City tri-state area, or anywhere near the path above? One of the most unusual big ticket astronomical events of 2014 occurs on in the morning hours of Thursday March 20th, when the asteriod 163 Erigone “blocks” or occults the bright star Regulus.
This is brightest star to be occulted by an asteroid for 2014, and has a potential to be observed by millions."
