The Cincinnati Astronomical Society celebrates National Astronomy Day 2012 by sharing the wonders of the night sky with children of all ages, families, scouts and teachers. National Astronomy Day began in 1973. Astronomical societies, planetariums, museums, and observatories across the country sponsor public viewing sessions, presentations, workshops, and other activities to increase public awareness about the profession and hobby of astronomy and our wonderful universe. Join us on Saturday April 28th for spectacular views of the planets Venus, Mars and Saturn. You’ll be amazed by the thousands of craters you can see on our Moon. Saturday your family will first enjoy a multimedia presentation, have plenty of time to have all your astronomical questions answered and then astronomers will train their four powerful telescopes to the sky. We’ll have activities & displays for all ages and hot chocolate will be available to take the chill off. Astronomers will be on hand to answer all your astro-questions.
