The Cincinnati Observatory, 'The Birthplace of American Astronomy' and home to the oldest professional telescope in the US, is always a wonderful destination for anyone, of any age, who is curious about science, astronomy and the world around them.
This summer, the observatory has several activities lined up to engage, entertain and enlighten those interested in the sun, the moon, Saturn - and other cosmic entities that make up our own solar system.
There is also a symposium coming in late June, in memory of Dr. Craig Waff, that will highlight the unique and oddly intertwined history of astronomy and baseball in the Queen City.
Upcoming events include:
CELESTIAL SIPS FOR THE SUMMER SOLSTICE
Friday June 20: 8:00-10:30pm
