01/19/2017 – Ephemeris – Tonight bring the kids, it’s Greenspire School’s STEM Night.

January 19, 2017

Ephemeris for Thursday, January 19th.  The Sun will rise at 8:13.  It’ll be up for 9 hours and 20 minutes, setting at 5:33.  The Moon, at last quarter today, will rise at 1:31 tomorrow morning.

Tonight the Greenspire School is sponsoring its annual STEM Night from 5:30 to 7:30 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.  The Grand Traverse Astronomical Society will be there for the fourth year with yours truly finding out what comets are made of by helping the kids create dry ice comets.  We’ll have other exhibits too.  If it happens to be clear there will be viewing of the planet Venus and other wonders of the sky.  Plus there will be fun things to give away.   There’s also cookies and hot chocolate.

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