    The new dark sky site for the Astronomy Club of Tulsa is at:
    36.8797 N, 95.9892 W 797 ft ASL  Hulah Lake
    
    
    This should replace (if allowed) or supplement:
    8337 36.937  96.65 700. TULSA3
    
    
    The site is wonderful (even saw the Gegenschein after the moon set), able to see mag 15 stars steadily and 14th mag galaxies at high power in my 12" Dob. Looked at satellites while moon was up. However, the evening culminated with my resetting my watch at 3 am as I was leaving. A few notes of some interest:
    
    22009 not seen on planar search from 2:08-2:58 UT (-20/+30 minutes!)
    
    AEHF-1 not seen -5/+10 min around 3:28 UT on 11245.06949846 elset
    26577 within 30s of inttles
    16116 within 30s
     
    COSPAR 8336 = TULSA1
    36.139208,-95.983429
    
    
    COSPAR 8335 = TULSA2
    +35.8311  -96.1411 1100ft
