Occultation by Eclipsed Moon-II, Karachi

A star, SD-16 3939, in the constellation of Libra at a distance of 1.4 degree SSW of Zubenelgenubi is going for an occultation by the eclipsed moon precisely at 42 minutes and 10seconds past 1am on the night between 4th and 5th May, 2004 in Karachi. Only the eclipsed moon made the star bright enough to be snapped in this picture. An ohterwise full moon would have hidden the star in its glow. This picture needs to be seen in sequence with the preceding and following ones, in which the star is farther and then is almost gone in the respective pictures.
