Come join us Saturday  April 13 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, OK 74063

The event will run from 7:30 PM to about 10:30 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 7:54 PM daylight time you can view the sun in solar telescopes and the 5-day old waxing crescent moon high overhead in the constellation of Gemini.  As the sky grows darker, we will be able to view the planet Jupiter low in the west.  Nearby will be the Comet 12P / Pons-Brooks which is predicted to be at it brightest in late April.

The bright stars of Orion, Gemini, Taurus along with other constellations will be still be visible in the SW.  The Big Dipper is climbing higher in the NE with Leo in the East.  Bring along your own telescope or binoculars if you like. There is plenty of room to enjoy an evening under the stars.

If the sky is cloudy, we will not be able to hold the event on this date but do plan more viewing opportunities at our observatory this summer.  Check our AstroTulsa.com  website of other event postings
