11/11/14 – Ephemeris – Something fishy in the stars

November 11, 2014

Ephemeris for Veteran’s Day, Tuesday, November 11th.  The sun will rise at 7:33.  It’ll be up for 9 hours and 45 minutes, setting at 5:18.   The moon, 3 days before last quarter, will rise at 9:41 this evening.

High in the south at 9 p.m. are the four bright stars of the Great Square of Pegasus, the upside down flying horse.  Lying along the left and bottom sides of the great square is the constellation of Pisces the fish, one of the 12 constellations of the Zodiac that lie along the path of the sun, moon and planets.  Even though Pisces is called the fish, the fish themselves are not seen in the stars.  What can be traced in the stars is the rope, that’s tied to their tails, anchored at the extreme southeastern part of the constellation far below and left of the lower left corner of the Great Square.  The right end of Pisces is the asterism, or informal constellation, of the Circlet.  It’s the loop of 5 stars, the rope around the tail of one of the two fish.

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