03/07/2014 – Ephemeris – Astronomy events at the Rogers Observatory tonight

March 7, 2014

Ephemeris for Friday, March 7th.  The sun will rise at 7:09.  It’ll be up for 11 hours and 28 minutes, setting at 6:38.   The moon, 1 day before first quarter, will set at 1:51 tomorrow morning.

A Star Bowl quiz will be held this evening between the NMC Astronomy Club and the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society at this evening’s meeting of the society at 8 p.m. at Northwestern Michigan College’s Rogers Observatory.  The society will accept anyone to help us.  These NMC students are smart.  After the Star Bowl there will be a star party starting at 9 p.m.  On tap if its clear will be the Moon, and the planet Jupiter.  Plus Orion and its great nebula, a star nursery only 1400 light years away will be a wonderful sight with its clouds and wisps of gas and dust illuminated by a clutch of hot baby stars.  The Observatory is located south of Traverse City on Birmley Road off either Garfield or Keystone roads.

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