Daylight Jupiter Occultation

Am wondering about how much to feature a daylight occultation of Jupiter that will occur on January 23, 2020, in my Astronomy calendar?

The event will occur around noon, but is less than 2 days before new moon, so only about 22 degrees will separate Sun from moon.

So, apart from the danger of accidentally looking at the sun through the telescope, will it be a sight worth looking for, or be too difficult?
