Will the unsuspecting husband survive?  Can their relationship continue?  Running through May 18th, check in here for tickets.

 

Seeing Stars and the Full Snow Moon in Cincinnati

by The Cincinnati Team

 


Astronomy Lessons at the Cincinnati Nature Center and Cincinnati Observatory - February 14th and 25th         

The Full Moon Walk will take place at the Cincinnati Nature Center on February 25th. Attendees, eight years old and up, should gather at the Creekside Barn at 7:30 pm.  Imagine looking for signs of animals and wildlife while hiking under a full moon. Registration is required.

Native American tribes often named full moons.  Because the full moon in February usually occurred during the heaviest snow falls, it was called the Full Snow Moon.  Other tribes referred to it as the Full Hunger Moon or Little Famine Moon because hunting was difficult and food scarce.  The Cherokee tribe named it the Full Bony Moon because it was a time when they were forced to gnaw on bones and eat bone marrow soup.

"Turn the lights down low, the stars are out" at the Cincinnati Observatory Center brings romance to you on February 14th at 7 pm. The "Birthplace of American Astronomy" is scheduled to give your Valentine a true, out-of-this-world experience high atop Mt. Lookout.  In addition to viewing the planets of Venus, Jupiter and Mars through the historic telescopes, you will be treated to an evening of music, drinks, chocolate, and flowers.

Host of the evening, Dean Regas, astronomer and co-host of the PBS program Star Gazers, will be talking about the red stars of passion in the winter sky.  Volunteers will also give tours of the building.  This will be an unusual and unexpected opportunity to bring romance to your relationship!

Reservations are required for the evening at $50 per couple.
