Meeting - Guest Peggy Walker - Restoring a Classic Telescope

3/29/2019 7:00 PM

Guest Speaker - Peggy Walker will be telling us about restoring legendary telescope maker, John Dobson's, original Sidewalk astronomy telescope and also their trip to the Winter Star Party in Florida. Come see this historical classic scope. More details will be in our April 2019 newsletter under the ABOUT tab on this website.

The public is invited to join us each month inside the Jenks High school planetarium. Inside their modern full dome planetarium, we can see recreations of astronomical events past, present or future. 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.

After the meeting, members often go to eat at one of Jenks great restaurants to visit and become better acquainted and just have a great time!
We hope to see you there!

NOTE: If Jenks School System is closed due to weather the event will be cancelled.
