Skies This Week Celestial events in the skies for the week of Jan. 18-24, 2011, as compiled for The Loafer by Mark D. Marquette. Jupiter dominates the early evening, while ringed Saturn rules the morning. And this week the Full Moon of January is illuminating the barren, winter landscape of our Appalachia wonderland. But the plethora of bright stars punch through the moonshine. The Moon starts the week in Gemini and ends it in Leoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a sure sign of the coming spring. Days are getting longer, as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve passed the latest sunrise (7:42 am), and now our favorite star clears the eastern horizon at 7:38 am. Tues. Jan. 18 Early risers have a treat in two bright planets greeting the pre-dawn sky. At say 5 a.m., Venus is high up, the brightest object in the sky. Almost overhead is a bright, yellow star, the planet Saturn. Wed. Jan. 19 Full Moon is today at 4:21 p.m. when the Earth is exactly between the Sun and Moon. Rising in the east in Cancer the Crab, the Full Moon of January is called the Moon After Yule, or the Old Moon. Thurs. Jan. 20 Happy 80th birthday to Apollo 11 moonwalker Edwin â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buzzâ&#x20AC;? Aldrin. A champion of manned space travel to this day, Aldrin is the second man on the Moon, landing in July 1969 with Neil Armstrong, 79. Fri. Jan. 21 Orion the Hunter is dominating the southeast skies, with its belt of three stars bisecting the starry shoulders and knees. The left shoulder is reddish Betelgeuse, while the right knee is bright, white Rigel. On the left side of Orion are his two dogs, Canis Major and Minor. The brightest star of the sky, Sirius is below Orion, and Procyon is above it. They form a triangle with Betelgeuse - the Winter Triangle. Sat. Jan. 22 Above Orion is a distinctive â&#x20AC;&#x153;V-shapeâ&#x20AC;? of stars, the horns of the mythical bull, Taurus. The reddish star is Aldebaran, the eye of the bull. The star cluster, The Pleiades, is in the shoulder of Taurus. Sun. Jan. 23 To the left, or east of Taurus are the brother twin stars of Gemini. Castor is on top and Pollux is below. Above Gemini is Auriga the Charioteer, marked by another bright star, Capella. Mon. Jan. 24. On this 1986 date in space history, 1$6$¡V9R\DJHUVSDFHFUDIWĂ HZE\ the planet Uranus, sending back the only close-up view of the the seventh planet. Voyager 2 tripled the number of moons orbiting Uranus from 5 to 15, and took photos of nine skinny rings.

Ginger is approximately a year old Terrier mix. She came to us after her owners abandoned her and Sugar another one of our adoptable pets. They moved out and left the two sweet things with no food or water outside with no shelter. Ginger is very sweet and lovable with people and children. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to like any of the dogs at the kennels except for Sugar. It could just be the kennels too. She is very energetic and would need a yard to run and play in. She is already spayed and current on all shots. Please call Regina 423-239-5237 for more adoption info.
