    I ran a sim of the moon Jupiter occultation on the evening of 18 February, Adelaide, South Australia using the drop down location list

    Stellarium shows Jupiter entering the dark limb about 20:30 but Skychart (Cartes du Ciel) has it at 22:50.

    Why the discrepancy? While Jupiter looks the same position Stellarium shows Moon about a degree earlier than Ciel.

    RANZ reports occultation at 22:50.
