We show that the occultation of Sagittarius A* by stars can be detected with
space-based or space-ground very-long-baseline-interferometers (SVLBIs), with
an expected event rate that is high due to relativistic precession. We compute
the tell-tale signal of an occultation event, and describe methods to flag
non-occultation events that can masquerade as the signal.
