Starting at 11:59pm on March 19 and going until 2:30am on March 20, the Intrepid Museum will host astronomers from all over the tri-state region to view the occultation of Regulus, one of the brightest stars in the sky. Astronomers are predicting that shortly after 2:00am, the asteroid 163 Erigone will move between the Earth and Regulus causing the star to completely disappear from view for a brief moment. Come join us at Pier 86 in New York City to witness this beautiful, rare occurrence in the night sky!
