11/08/2013 – Ephemeris – Star Party in the Grand Traverse area tomorrow night

November 7, 2013

Ephemeris for Friday, November 8th.  The sun will rise at 7:30.  It’ll be up for 9 hours and 51 minutes, setting at 5:21.   The moon, 2 days before first quarter, will set at 10:42 this evening.

Tomorrow, Saturday the 9th, the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society will host a star party at Northwestern Michigan College’s Rogers Observatory from 9m to 11 p.m.  On tap if it’s clear will be the moon and later on in the evening the planet Jupiter will rise in the east with its retinue of moons and its cloud bands.  There are still some northern summer telescopic wonders; plus rising in the east some star clusters and galaxies bright enough to see in the moonlight.  Best of these star clusters is the Double Cluster, and the best of all the galaxies is the Great Andromeda Galaxy.  This will be the last Saturday evening viewing opportunity of the year.  There will still be a star party on Friday December 6th after the society meeting.

Times are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area of Michigan.  They may be different for your location.
