Occultation on 28 Oct. 2013 at 4:45 CDT

I was putting my insomnia to some use this morning and observing the moon. Did anyone see the moon occult a star at approximately 4:45 CDT (0945 UT) on October 28, 2013? The star passed behind the moon at approximately 62 degrees south latitude (I used crater Blancanus as a "land mark"). I didn't see it actually reappear, but it did after a time near the south pole.
