Bob Moler, from Interlochen Public Radio’s daily one-minute diary of the night sky and its accompanying blog called “Ephemeris
,” will guide us on a Star Talk beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the McGuire Community Room at the TADL Main Library.
Autumn Stars, Galaxies, Myths and Stories
The autumn evening sky holds the six constellations of a great Greek myth featuring a hero, a princess in distress, a monster, and a flying horse, among others. There’s the Anishinaabe story of how the Fisher (Big Dipper) gives us the autumn colors. A great galaxy that can be seen with the naked eye that will in the distant future collide with our own Milky Way Galaxy. And we’ll see the return of the beautiful Seven Sisters or Pleiades star cluster to our skies.
Weather dependent, around 8:00 p.m. we will head outside to view the evening sky for a Star Party
