OU Astronomy Club’s Lunar Sooners to Host Star Party in Yukon

Yukon Parks and Recreation is pleased to welcome the Lunar Sooners to Yukon! The Lunar Sooners are the members of the OU Astronomy Club, and they will be in Chisholm Trail Park the night of March 16 from 7:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. to give the public an up-close view of the night sky. 

The Lunar Sooners provide telescopes and set them up to observe Venus and Mercury, as well as some deep sky observing. Attendees receive a quick tour of the sky and explanations of what they are viewing. The public is welcome to bring their own telescopes and set them up as well. A question and answer section is available for any astronomy questions you may have.
