Watch the Moon Occult Mars Before Sunrise on February 18th
There are five lunar occultations in 2020 that involve Mars, but February's will be the only one visible in the U.S. and Central America. The others take place in March, August, September, and October, and are all mostly visible in the Southern Hemisphere (September's event will be accessible to viewers in northern Africa and southernmost Europe).

On February 18th, the planet will be 92% illuminated, 5.2″ in apparent diameter, and shine at magnitude 1.2 when it meets the Moon less than 1° north of the Lagoon Nebula in Sagittarius.

The December 24, 2007, occultation of Mars seasoned with rock music.
The planet's apparent diameter at the time was 15.8″. Action starts at the 1:22 mark.
