Tulsa, Oklahoma – Join us for a night of fun and laughter in the James E. Bertelsmeyer Planetarium on October 8, 2011, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm! For the first time, in conjunction with celebrating International Observe the Moon Night, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium will present comedian John Fannell for a performance under a high-def full-dome projection of outer space.

International Observe the Moon Night is an event observed by scientists, astronomers and moon enthusiasts around the globe. On this particular evening, the world will gather together as one community to observe, admire, and celebrate our moon. Shortly following the performance by John Fannell, the audience will join the Astronomy Club of Tulsa outside for an up-close look at the moon through high technology telescopes. The night will be unforgettable as we join astronomical communities around the world and actually see craters, mountains and valleys on the moon’s surface (weather permitting)!

Never before has a comedic production been presented in the planetarium. Viewers can enjoy the light-hearted humor of John Fannell while gazing overhead at some of the most beautiful objects in the universe. John Fannell is a comedian who has worked with the biggest names in the entertainment business including, Loretta Lynn, B.B. King, Randy Travis, The Righteous Brothers, Weird Al Yankovic, Rodney Carrington and Larry the Cable Guy. His jokes are family friendly and will be tailored to fit the theme of the evening: our moon!
