In very rare cases, planets can transit in front of another. There are only 7 mutual planetary transits between 1800 and 2100. The next one occurring in 1965 (Being only 8 from the Sun, it will be essentially unobservable.). The last one occurred in 1818 (Venus transits Jupiter).

A slightly more common event is the transit of Mercury or Venus across the Sun (Venus transit in 2012). Also this is not strictly an occultation but a passage of the planets' discs on the Sun.

Mutual Occultation of Superior Planets

These are very very rare events but much easier to observe as occuring at a greater elongation frmo the Sun.


Date: December 2nd, 2223
Occulting planet: Mars
Occulted object: Jupiter

Jupiter and Saturn get close in 2020 Also there are no forecast of occultations of Jupiter and Saturn, there is a close (still 10+ times Jupiter diameter) encounter (6'):
