105 E B St Jenks, OK see map link below
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!
Our presentation will be given by Byron Labadie. He went to Springdale, Arkansas and met with Scott Roberts, owner of Explore Scientific in Springdale, Arkansas. Byron did extensive research into the detailed process of making the glass optics used for telescopes and lenses, as well as the demanding specifications and tests needed to make the very finest glass. This will be an informative as well as comprehensive look at what goes into making high quality optics.
NOTE: If Jenks School System is closed due to weather the event will be cancelled.
The Jenks Planetarium is located at 105 East B St.
The Planetarium is on the third floor of the Math and Science building.
Parking is on the west side of the building. If that lot is full there is more on the east side.
