Friday April 14 - In Person Astronomy Club meeting
- Starts at 7:00 PM
Each Month during the school year our club holds a general meeting open to both our members and guests. We meet in the spacious Jenks High School Planetarium which has ample space for social distancing. At our meetings you can enjoy presentations topics such as current space exploration, astronomical events and on occasion we get the opportunity to preview the latest planetarium production the students are working on. You also can learn more about past, present, and future club events and activities.
This is a great opportunity for our members and guests to share their enthusiasm for astronomy and learn from each other. We hope to see you there!
