Box 2496 Appleton, WI 54912 info@foxcitiesmagazine.com Summer months blow by with the help of storms sweeping across northeastern Wisconsin. While the rest of us are holed up in our basements, storm spotters like Bill Schulze are out weathering the elements to provide the particulars for those updates. Appleton resident Schulze says that many people don’t realize that there is a difference between the storm spotting he does for the National Weather Service and the job of people who chase those storms down. “With storm spotting, safety is the most important thing as opposed to chasing, where getting the shot or getting super close is the most important thing,” Schulze says. Schulze braves adverse driving conditions through heavy winds and rain to watch storms roll in and then provides the reports on conditions that are issued by the NWS and used by local media. He’s always been fascinated with weather and has had an interest in volunteering since high school. After obtaining his amateur radio license, Schulze began his volunteer position with the NWS in the spring of 2006. While he says that seeing the havoc that these storms wreak is the hardest part of the job, the best part is feeling that he is contributing to the public safety of Fox Citians. “It is very rewarding knowing that what you are reporting could be saving lives as that piece of information is what could generate a warning,” he says. — By Karilyn Robinson The Summer of Saturn In May 4 of the 5 visible planets danced in the sky just prior to sunrise: swift and dim Mercury entering the morning sky, brilliant Venus after spending most of 2011 as the “morning star” is now preparing to swing behind the Sun to become the “evening star” by the end of summer, Mars continues on its orbit biding its time until slightly faster Earth passes it yet again (as it does every 26 months) to herald its return into the evening sky; and finally, Jupiter, having just exited the evening sky will return again to the evening sky in the fall. The sole planet in the evening sky this summer is Get to Know… Name: Bill Schulze Residence: Appleton Occupation: Storm spotter for the National Weather Service Years on the Job: 5 Barlow Planetarium SkyWatch A methane/ethane sea on Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, as compared to Lake Superior. Fox Cities at work By Alan J. Peche, Director of Barlow Planetarium Saturn – the magnificent ringed planet. As summer takes its hold on the residents of the Fox Valley, Wisconsin (and the northern hemisphere), activities begin to include swimming, boating, water and beaches it is interesting to think that the Earth isn’t unique in the solar system when it comes to beaches – there is another “world” that has beaches in our very own solar system: Saturn’s moon Titan. However, that is pretty much as far as the comparison can be taken since the liquid on Titan is not the refreshing, life-giving H2O that we know, like and need. Titan’s analogous liquid is CH4 with some C2H6 – commonly referred to methane and ethane – at a chilly 300 degrees below! During the warm summer evenings take a moment to gaze up at Saturn in the evening sky. However, if you have a chance to view Saturn through even a small telescope, usually there will be a bright “star” in the same view – a bright “star” that actually has BEACHES (next to hydrocarbon seas).
