Knowledge about the universe is exploding. New spacecraft continue to send data and pictures from across the solar system. Ever larger telescopes are probing the distant reaches of space. The search is on for "dark energy" “dark matter” gravity waves, and whatever other surprises the Universe has in store for us. If any of this interests you, consider the Bartlesville Astronomical Society. Whether your interest is in stars, planets, asteroids and comets, solar or lunar eclipses, black holes, galaxies, meteor showers, the search for extra-terrestrial life, the origin and distant fate of the cosmos, the Bartlesville Astronomical Society gives you a chance to join others to learn and to share your ideas.
We meet monthly at the library, and also host occasional public star parties, where we give the public chance to see the night sky through telescopes and binoculars. You don't need a telescope to join, just an interest in what lies beyond earth.
When you join us, you also get a membership The Astronomical League, with its great quarterly publication “The Reflector”, its wide range of astronomical resources, book discounts and many observing challenge certificates.
Our newsletter is available by email. But events are usually also published in the newspaper and on the cable community announcements channel.
Our Membership Application Form is available for download at the bottom of this page.
