Join Astronomer Dean Regas on these fast, fun, online classes about the world of astronomy and science history. Best of all, you can take these from the comfort of your own home and will receive a copy of the recorded classes that you can watch again at your convenience.

The stars and constellations of Spring are quickly returning to the night sky. And you can learn how to identify them all.

Explore the constellations Leo, Bootes, Virgo, and Corona Borealis as well as some holdovers from the Winter Sky like Orion and Gemini. Then keep up with where to find the planets with the naked eye.

This class is perfect for beginner stargazers as well as more seasoned amateur astronomers. Dean will share tips on finding not only the bright stars and planets, but the fainter more challenging hidden gems in the Spring Sky.

Tickets: $10/class per household

About the organizer

Inspiring generations to look to the stars

The mission of the Cincinnati Observatory is to maintain the integrity and heritage of an historic 19th century observatory and to educate, engage, and inspire our community about astronomy and science.

Our vision is to be a primary resource in furthering astronomy and science education through programming:

For K-12 schools and the public on and off our campus

For universities and classes for teacher professional development

That promotes the rich history of the Observatory

That strengthens our connection to allied STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) organizations
