11 stars brighter than magnitude 4 can be occulted by the totally eclipsed Moon, among them one (Regulus) is of the first magnitude. 7 additional stars can be occulted by bright site of the partially eclipsed Moon. List are given for events between 1900 and 2050. For Regulus, events are calculated for 0-2450. Events are found to occur in clusters. The last Regulus event was in 1943, the next is in 2445. Periodicities are discussed.
