Club of Tulsa
The Astronomy club of Tulsa schedules home school field trips
to their observatory located SW of Mounds (about a 45 minute
drive from downtown Tulsa). It is open to the public only
by appointment. They have a classroom that holds up to 50
people and a 16 inch telescope in the dome which can be viewed
by 15-20 people. Groups larger than 20 will need to provide
adult supervision for those who are waiting their turn to
go upstairs. You should have one adult for each ten children.
Persons using the 16 inch scope must be capable of climbing
a ten foot step ladder for each object viewed. You should
plan on 1 minute for each person to view each object. For
example, if you have 30 people, who want to view the moon,
Jupiter, and Saturn, it would take at least 90 minutes for
everyone to get a look. The moon is by far the most popular
object for first time star gazers, therefore I usually suggest
that visitors arrive about 30 minutes before sunset, on nights
when the moon is visible between sunset and 10 PM. For those
who arrive before the sun get too dim, we have a small telescope
with a special solar filter for viewing sunspots. Contact:
Gerry Andries, Astronomy Club of Tulsa, Observatory Manager.
