comment How does maximum distance from the ecliptic determine the frequency for which a planet is likely to be occulted by the Moon?
Thank you. I should have verified those maximum inclination values, I was going by memory. 7 degrees is Mercury, not Venus! I see that for the two planets in mention, given the question as stated, there is no difference in probability of occulation. I will research the question further taking into account the Moon and planet's likelihood to be at any given location in the 'ecliptic band' in which they travel. Intuitively I suspect that they spend more time near the edges, which would give Venus a higher probability.

comment Precession period matching solar year
@Kvothe: Thank you, that is a wonderful video. I haven't seen the whole thing yet, but I will. However, interesting as it is, the video does not address the question of a stable 1:1 precession:year ratio.
