01/16/2014 – Ephemeris – NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador

January 16, 2014

Ephemeris for Thursday, January 16th.  The sun will rise at 8:15.  It’ll be up for 9 hours and 14 minutes, setting at 5:29.   The moon, 1 day past full, will rise at 6:25 this evening.

I am proud to announce that I have been appointed  one of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s new 38 new Solar System Ambassadors for 2014.  Solar System Ambassadors are volunteers that host star parties, and provide presentations about space, the universe, and NASA missions to promote awareness of the STEM or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields as career choices or at least to encourage the students to become more science literate voters.  Ambassadors work with school classes, scout groups and non-profit organizations.  Being now newly retired I have the freedom of daytime visits.  I will be serving the northwestern Lower Peninsula of Michigan.  Interested?  The easiest way to initially contact me by email is at info@gtastro.org or bob@bjmoler.org.

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