Back on Standard Time

Hey Space Placers!

Well, how are you doing adjusting to Standard Time?

We officially ended Daylight Savings Time on 11-7-10  at 0200 so it is darker earlier. Of course that means there is more "night" available to look at the sky.

We are also losing several minutes of daylight each day as we get closer to the start of winter which occurs on the winter solstice, December 21st.

The constellations of summer are fading into the sky glow in the west after sunset and the fall constellations are prominent now as darkness falls.

 For you early risers the stars you see in the south before it starts getting light are the beauties of winter. The really bright star you see in Sirius.
