Re: [guide-user] Earth- Sun conjunction May 11 1984 as seen from Mars

Hi Gehrhard and Larry,

Indeed it seems related to magnitudes.
In display data shown with planets "on", there is no problem but with
planets "fixed" or "auto" the Earth disappears:
With "fixed" you need a magnitude of at least 17 to have the Earth displayed
during the whole transit:
As my setting was "on", I did not notice the disappearance.
