Galileo Galilei was born February 15, 1564. For his 450th birthday the Cincinnati Observatory has planned something special.
The program combines history and science to showcase not only Galileo’s astronomical achievements with the telescope but demonstrate his greatest experiments. That’s right, we’ll be dropping things off the side of the building (to examine the force of gravity).
Viewing of Jupiter and the Galilean Moons through the historic 1843 telescope is included (weather permitting). No reservations required.
