This website's main objective is to instruct the user on the phenomenon of Occulations. It starts off by explaining what an occulation is and giving examples of it: eclipses, transits, etc. The importance of occulations is then explained by three main phenomena: occulations by the Moon, occulations by asteroids and binary star occulation. In all of these cases the main obective of study are sizes and shapes of the interacting objects. A calendar and a table of occulations are provided for different objects, along with a resource list.
