02/03/2017 – Ephemeris – Star Quiz tonight, the college kids vs the old star guys

February 3, 2017

Ephemeris for Friday, February 3rd.  The Sun will rise at 7:58.  It’ll be up for 9 hours and 56 minutes, setting at 5:54.  The Moon, at first quarter today, will set at 1:35 tomorrow morning.

A Star Bowl quiz will be held this evening between the NMC Astronomy Club and members of the NMC astronomy class 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 viewing night starting at 9 p.m.  On tap if its clear will be the Moon.  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.
