The results of a photographic plate search for stars as faint as V=14
which may be occulted by Uranus or Neptune or their rings between
1 January 1991 and 31 December 1999 are presented. Circumstances
for the closest approach of
Uranus to 76 stars and
Neptune to 18 stars
are presented. Occultations by Neptune's ring "arcs"
are predicted in 1992, 1997, and 1999.
