This is a reprint of an article of M. Federspiel
in the "Journal

(= Vereinigung der Sternfreunde e.V.). This article is written in German language.

Occultations of Minor Planets by the Moon
These events are very rare because only a few minor planets, which could be occulted by the Moon, are getting bright enough to be observable against the dark lunar limb.
Dave Herald lists the following minor planets in OCCULT:
(1) Ceres (6) Hebe (15) Eunomia
(2) Pallas (7) Iris (18) Melpomene
(3) Juno (8) Flora (29) Amphitrite
(4) Vesta (9) Metis
Upcoming Occultations in Europe
There are no occultations of the listed minor planets by the Moon visible in Europe in the years 2018 - 2023.
The occultations of (9) Metis (8m.9) at 2019 Nov 10 and (29) Amphitrite (9m.7) at 2021 Jan 30 will be drowned in the light of the nearly full Moon.
