They are reproduced in accord with 'fair use' provisions unless copyright is otherwise noted. Constellations anciennes disparues. Ch3 alignements planetaires. Jusatocc. Occultation of Saturn by Jupiter are very rare events to be seen from Earth.


Their average frequency is about one in 4000 years, and our present epoch is particularly "empty" of them. None has ever happened during historical times and the next one will be in y 7541. But if mankind will not be extinct (and I won't bet ten cents on that) people will have the extraordinary opportunity to see two such occultations in the same year! Something which is probably not going to happen again in a million years or so!... Les Prochains Evénements rares. Le chaos dans le système solaire. Astro.uni-bonn. Glorious events that already happened Where: Area(s) of best visibility Next: In how many years does the same or a similar event take place?


References: Key web links or other references Also check M. Peuschel's event listings! The listed events are mostly alignments, conjunctions, transits, occultations and eclipses, involving two or more solar system bodies - and they are so rare that they happen on average less than once per decade.

This solution fits the terrestrial planet orbits to ~25" or better, but achieves only ~600" for Saturn.
