  1. Occultation of Regulus
    Asteroid 163 Erigone passes in front Regulus (as seen from Earth) on the night of March 19 and 20. Only visible from a narrow swath across the northeastern North America here.

    Erigone will eclipse Regulus for between 14 seconds and up to two minutes around 2:06 a.m. EDT

    Erigone, (daughter of Icarus) hung herself after finding her father murdered. She is remembered in the heavens as the constellation Virgo.
