Events: Venus Friday

By Jordan Vilines · July 19th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Looking for love in all the wrong places? Look up and look no further.

The goddess of love, better known to astrologists as Venus, awaits your arrival this Friday at the Cincinnati Observatory Center. Here atop the hillsides of Mount Lookout, guests will gaze upon the celestial brilliance of Earth’s sister planet through the lens of the observatory’s historic telescopes.

As part of the facility’s Venus Fridays program, visitors will be escorted on a tour of the nineteenth-century historic center and learn about Cincinnati’s role in the growth of astronomy in America.

Weather permitting, the refracting telescopes will also offer fabulous views of the Moon and Saturn. 8:30-11 p.m. Friday at the Cincinnati Observatory Center, 3489 Observatory Place, Mount Lookout. Admission is $6 adults, $4 kids. Reservations are recommended.
