Take the whole family to Myriad Botanical Gardens in Oklahoma City for a night of stargazing. From 8:30 to 10 p.m. on the Great Lawn, members of the Oklahoma City Astronomy Club will have their telescopes on hand for a free, in depth look at the night sky. With the sun setting at approximately 8:05 p.m., the sky will light up with its dwellers as gazers gather. According to the club, constellations Pegasus, Sagittorius, Scorpius, Libra, Virggo, Canes, Ursa Major (The Big Dipper) and Minor (The Little Dipper), Leo, Hercules, Canes and many more will be in sight. See how many you can point out. Also in the Thursday night sky, the moon, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto will offer observation. There’s so much to discover. For more information, visit
