Sketch © Gerry Smerchanski  I only had time for one sketch and even that was rushed with many details being left out. I did take time to watch the occultation of Beta Capricornus (Dabih) It was quite some time between the disappearance of the first companion and the second as they are separated by some distance. After they disappeared I went to sketching and didn't notice that they had popped out the other side while I was still sketching.
