Public Sidewalk Astronomy Night -  Saturday March 16  - 7:00 PM


Come join us Saturday  March 16 for an evening of viewing the moon and stars in our telescopes.   The Astronomy Club of Tulsa will have several telescopes set up on the spacious lawn next to the Case Community Center   1050 W Wekiwa Rd, Sand Springs,

The event will run from 7:00 PM to about 10:00 PM.  This is a come and go family friendly event.  There is plenty of parking at the community center. You may even like to bring a lawn chair and enjoy the sunset. Before sunset at 7:33 PM daylight time you can view the sun in solar telescopes and the first quarter moon.  As the sky grows darker, we will be able to view the planet Jupiter along with its 4 brighter moons.  By 8:10 the bright stars of Orion, Gemini, Taurus along with other constellations will be become visible. We should also be able to view the Pleiades star cluster and the Orion nebula.

There is plenty of room for you to bring your own telescope if you have one.


If the sky is cloudy, we will not be able to hold the event on this date but do plan to have others later this Spring.  Check our AstroTulsa.com  website of other event postings
