Arrived home from The Astronomer meeting in Basingstoke in time to catch the latter part of this event. Took several frames but most of them in RAW - mistake! The processing is not straight forward.

From Paul Abel's challenge notes; HIP 42542, mag 6.8 is seen just above the Moon a couple of minutes before it was occulted.

North is to the right.
