01/15/2015 – Ephemeris – Family STEM Night at Greenspire School

January 15, 2015

Ephemeris for Thursday, January 15th.  The sun will rise at 8:16.  It’ll be up for 9 hours and 11 minutes, setting at 5:28.   The moon, 2 days past last quarter, will rise at 4:07 tomorrow morning.

Tonight the Greenspire School is sponsoring its annual Family STEM Night from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the school on Red Drive at the Grand Traverse Commons. Red Drive is a block west of Silver Drive that connects to Silver Lake Road at Franke Road. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  One of the demonstrations will be a 3D printer.  The Grand Traverse Astronomical Society will be there also making dry ice comets, showing the sky and Comet Lovejoy through telescopes if it’s clear, and giving away two Galileoscope telescope kits and a some Race to the Planets trivia games courtesy of Professor Jerry Dobek and Project Astro. There are lots of hands on activities for the whole family.

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