Antares Occultation caught on camera

This excellent video was captured by @astroguyz in Hudson, Florida. It shows the disappearance of a Tau behind the western limb of the Moon, while the Moon is not yet Full, and thus behind the terminator in the pre-dawn and also illustrating very well just how fast our relatively large natural satellite speeds along its orbit about the Earth-Moon Barycenter (EMB).

The Full video can be seen with some high resolution HERE.
