Come join us Saturday August 10 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 8:19 PM daylight time you can view the sun in solar telescopes and the First Quarter in the constellation of Virgo.  Just at dusk we may be able to catch Venus before it sets in the west.  As it gets dark the bright stars of the Summer Triangle will become visible in the eastern sky.   Numerous star clusters and nebula are visible in this region of the sky.   The planet Saturn rise about 9:30 PM and should be high enough for viewing in our telescopes by 10:00 PM.  

Our astronomy club members will have a number of telescopes set up for viewing.  They will be eager to show you some of the night sky treasures and answer questions.   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
