Great photos on your site. Since you've shown that you keep track of Venus-Moon occultations, perhaps you know about how often it happens. Every year? Every 10 years? My reason for asking: I'm doing research on an ancient Mesopotamian myth which I think is an allegory of a series of celestial events. The eclipsing of Venus by the Moon could be an important part of the myth, IF it doesn't happen too often.
Thanks for any input.
