October 3, 2014

Ephemeris for Friday, October 3rd.  The sun will rise at 7:42.  It’ll be up for 11 hours and 36 minutes, setting at 7:19.   The moon, 2 days past first quarter, will set at 3:01 tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow is Fall Astronomy Day.  To celebrate the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society will move its first Friday of the month meeting and star party to Saturday the 4th.  At 8 p.m local landscape architect and sundial expert Dean Connors will talk about, of course, sundials and the myriad of forms they take.  Starting at 9 p.m. the star party portion of the night will begin with the moon as the featured celestial object.  Members of the society will also provide information on this month’s two eclipses and how to observe a solar eclipse safely.  The meeting and star party will be held at Northwestern Michigan College’s Rogers Observatory located south of Traverse City on Birmley Road. Between Garfield and Keystone roads.

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