to all my family and friends near cincinnati,
this saturday, september 13, there is an all day, family-friendly event called SCOPE OUT at the cincinnati observatory at Mt. Lookout. if you didnt know that this was the first public observatory in the US, or one of the oldest operational telescopes in the country, then you should definitely go check it out!
the events during the day are free, and you can register for the evening dinner featuring a very exciting keynote speaker... *the* bad astronomer himself, phil plait! here we are in austin last january during the AAS meeting. he's the second from the left....
the events take place from noon - 10:30, with the dinner from 6-8pm. i hope you can go and enjoy this great feature of my home town!
