Occultation of El Nath

We have finally broken the record breaking 15 days over 35 degrees C here, and now it is a pleasantly cool 28. Last Friday we escaped the heat by going down the beach. The setting Sun made fantastic coloured patterns on the water, and the Moon overhead added to the scene. But I missed the occultation of Elnath (beta Taurii), due to trying to stop Smallest One paddling into the sunset. I did point out Elnath very close to the Moon to people later on though.

David Gee didn't miss it though, here is his video of that event. Just wonderful.
