The 
Bartlesville Astronomical Society meets monthly to share experiences, exchange information and learn about the fascinating and ever changing world of astronomy.  Our members conduct public star parties (observing sessions), providing the opportunity for everyone to see the celestial wonders of the night sky through telescopes and binoculars.  But you don't need a telescope to join.  The Bartlesville Astronomy Club is open to anyone with an interest in astronomy and a desire to learn.

If you have an interest in astronomy, we encourage you to join the Bartlesville Astronomical Society.  Whether you're curious about stars and constellations, planets, asteroids and comets, solar or lunar eclipses, black holes, galaxies, meteor showers or any other aspects of space and astronomy, the Bartlesville Astronomical Society has something to offer.


For most of human history, the stars told us where we were in space and time.  Have we forgotten how to look up?
