Members Observing Night - CANCELLED

10/21/2017 5:40 PM

Due to the weather forecast calling for rain and possibly severe storms this evening, we have decided to CANCEL the club picnic and observing night tonight (Saturday). We plan to reschedule the picnic at a later date.


We are having our annual picnic at the observatory this month. To allow more people to attend, we have decided to have the picnic and Members Observing Night on Saturday this month. Note that gates will open an hour earlier than usual. (We usually open at sundown for Members Night.)

The forecast is not great for Saturday. If it is just cloudy that evening, we intend to have the picnic but obviously we won’t be able to observe. If there is rain/storms, we will cancel both the picnic and observing night and reschedule at a later date. It’s approximately a 45 minute drive from downtown Tulsa. Always be sure to check the club website or Facebook before heading out. Cancellations will be posted on our website and Facebook by 4:30 PM.
