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.

Trains, Trestles and Traditions Now at Krohn Conservatory

by The Cincinnati Team

It's a must go!  This year's Krohn Conservatory Holiday show, The Return of Trains, Trestles and Traditions is one of the best ever!  Plan to take you family before it closes on January 6.

The show will appeal to all ages, but especially to train lovers and gardeners.  It's absolutely a treat! Trains wander over bridges and through tunnels and covered bridges, including the favorite, Tommy the Train. All are LGB trains that use "G"scale, a larger size that children can see more easily amongst the poinsettias, amaryllis', cyclamens and evergreens. The size is also perfect with flowers for garden railroading.

Applied Imagination brought all their talents to bear in designing the layout and building the miniature replicas of outstanding Cincinnati landmarks.  Even more interesting is that they are built out of natural materials.  The Roebling Suspension Bridge is made of bark...who would have thought that it looks like stone when placed in this display? Try to identify the historical buildings that have been recreated by Applied Imagination for the event.

Visit Shillito's Santa's Workshop

by The Cincinnati Team

 

 
Christmas ElfNewport on the Levee is the site of the Elves from Shillito's Santa's Workshop.  100 + elves have been refurbished and set up again in the displays that once graced the corner windows of the Shillito's Department Store.  Throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's thousands of children and parents visited the display.
 
The attraction was purchased by Bill Spinneweber in 2005 and parts of it were displayed in Mariemont for several years.  It was obvious that extensive renovation was needed to keep the exhibit in good condition.  This summer a campaign was put in place to fund the restoration and find a more permanent home.
 
So, plan to visit all 11 scenes that take you through the life of Santa's helpers at the North Pole. at Newport on the Levee this year.
