This occultation in the morning hours will be visible from southern Portugal only. At this location the sun will be just below the horizon and a twilight graze at the northern lunar limb can be observed on a line from Elvas and Setubal, Portugal. Observers in Lisbon can observe a very close conjunction of both celestial bodies.

Detailed data for the southern limit graze can be found here.
