During the total lunar eclipse of November 8, 2022, which was observed here in Taiwan just after nightfall, a lunar occultation of Uranus was underway at the same time as the eclipse, as shown above. This rare celestial treat could only be seen in parts of Asia and North America and was only visible through binoculars or a telescope.
