Audio will be available later today.

— Host Joe Palca talks to Astronomer David Dunham of Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory about an important astronomical event: tomorrow's lunar occultation of the star Aldebaran, when the moon passes in front of the bright star. Amateur video enthusiasts around the country will shoot the pre-dawn event. Dunham hopes the video tapes will help in mapping the edge of the moon in more detail.
