On November 3, 2001 the moon occulted Saturn. The disappearance took place on the bright limb when the moon was very low in the sky (14º). A sequence of digital images was obtained with a Celestron 8 F/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain and a Olympus Camedia
C-1400 L using the afocal system. By the time Saturn
reappeared the moon was only 25º from the horizon. Observations and images were carried out by Pedro Ré, Carlos Saraiva and Pedro Figueiredo.
