Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing

Thursday, October 23, 2014 4:30-6:30

We hope you join us and the Jenks High School Planetarium to watch the Partial Solar Eclipse on October 23rd!

The event will begin at 4:30 pm at the JHS planetarium, with the partial eclipse starting at 4:43 pm. The eclipse will last until sunset at 6:35 pm.

Outside of the planetarium's entrance, we will have an desk with information about the club, planetarium, and solar eclipses. Solar viewing glasses will be available for purchase for $3. With proper care and use, these will allow you to view the sun safely any time, any where without a solar telescope (more details available at the desk during the event). There will be a short show about solar eclipses running continuously inside the planetarium. Following the planetarium show, guests may proceed to the Science Building's spacious roof top viewing area where The Astronomy Club of Tulsa and the Jenks planetarium will have safe solar telescopes set up for the public viewing. This event was made to be a quick "come and go" event, so please stop by if you have a few minutes!

The planetarium is located on the 3rd floor of the Math & Science Building (you will see the planetarium dome on the roof). When you enter, take the stairs or elevator to the 3rd floor and follow the hallways around to the planetarium.

PLEASE NOTE: If the sky is cloudy it will not be possible to view the eclipse, therefore the event will be canceled. As with all of our other outdoor events, please check the event listing on our website and our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/astronomycluboftulsa) PRIOR to arriving. If we must cancel, we will post it on this page and Facebook by 3:30 pm.

We hope to see you Thursday evening!


CAUTION: Never look at the sun without a certified safe solar filter.
See the attachment for full details and directions.
