A Celestial Compass for the New year: Charlevoix, USA

Organiser: The Storyteller's Night Sky & Charlevoix Circle of Arts

Event Date(s): January 10, 2019

About: Mary Stewart Adams, Star Lore Historian, will share the celestial highlights of the new year, which includes the total eclipse of the moon that will occur on January 20-21, 2019, and that will be visible all over North America. In addition, we will work on a hands-on project creating a compass rose of wind and stars. On historical navigation maps, a “compass rose” usually appears as an 8-pointed star used to indicate the cardinal and ordinal directions. On a ship’s compass, these points were named for the wind that came from that direction.  The sidereal compass rose, or “rose of stars” on the other hand, marked 32 compass points, based on certain stars as they rose and set in the sky. This type of compass originated with the nomadic tribes of the Middle East, who traveled through the desert lands gleaning their direction from the stars, rather than as sailors did, by making best use of prevailing winds.  Joining the roses of wind and stars is a beautiful way to celebrate the new year artistically and contemplatively!

Young Astronomers Planetarium Show and Neutron Stars Lecture: Detroit, USA

Organiser: Wayne State University

Event Date(s): January 12, 2019

About: 

Young Astronomers Planetarium Show - This free planetarium show is geared towards astronomers under the age of 10. Come join us at the Wayne State University planetarium to learn about our solar system, planets and stars, and watch the full-dome film Polaris, the Space Submarine and the Polar Night. 20 walk-in seats available.

Neutron Stars: Humanity in a Sugar Cube - Professor Ed Cackett will discuss neutron stars, a type of stellar remnant that can result from the gravitational collapse of a massive star during a supernova event. Neutron stars and black holes are among the most exotic objects in the universe; studying neutron stars and black holes gives us access to exotic realms that we can’t explore on Earth. A lump of neutron star matter the size of a sugar cube would weigh as much as all humanity, and the stars have magnetic fields a trillion times Earth’s. Since we can’t reproduce such conditions in laboratories, we have to observe neutron stars with telescopes to figure out their properties. This free public science lecture will last approximately one hour, after which we will offer an optional 30 minute star-talk about the currently night sky in the planetarium for those that wish to stay.

The evening program will begin inside with hands on training focused on teaching you and your family how to operate and use the library telescopes now available in your public library. Guests will learn how to unpack the telescope, get the telescope ready for operation, find objects in the night sky and about telescope safety issues. Using the telescope is surprisingly easy and fun for the whole family. Weather permitting, the class will adjourn outside and apply what they have learned to find objects in the night sky. Don't plan to go home early because you will not want to leave once you get started.

Head Turning Celestial Sights, 2019 - 2022, by Joe Rao: Pleasantville, USA

Organiser: Westchester Amateur Astronomers, Inc.

Event Date(s): January 11, 2019

About: In the aftermath of the “Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017,” many were led to believe that there would be no more “astronomical spectaculars” until the next total solar eclipse over the US in 2024. In this talk, however, Joe Rao will explain that there are several celestial occurrences that are coming our way between now and 2022 that more than qualify as “head-turning” events. In fact, a couple of cases are literally once-in-a-lifetime sky shows. And the best thing of all is that you won’t need to make any arduous (or expensive) journeys to remote parts of the world: all of these events are accessible from our own backyards. Free and open to the public.
