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.
