    Tonight the clouds cleared late and I used binoculars for quick sighting of
    Apple flashing approx 4 degrees from alpha orion at 2:27:00 UTC. The prior 2
    nights observations of Apple were done with a telescope. I was wondering if
    it would be possible to observe Apple occult a star in between flashes using
    a telescope? Would the time duration be long enough to perceive the star
    blink out?
    How about seeing something bigger (but closer) like the ISS while in shadow
    occult a star?
