The Cincinnati Observatory is located in Cincinnati, Ohio (United States) on top of Mount Lookout. It consists of two observatory buildings housing an 11-inch (28 cm) and 16 inch (41 cm) aperture refracting telescope. It is the oldest professional observatory in the United States. It was a key facility for astronomical research and education at the University of Cincinnati and currently operates as a 19th-century observatory. There are regular viewings through both historical telescopes as well as tours and additional programs. The observatory also has an extensive outreach program, providing astronomical education for the Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana region.

During the winter the observatory has Luminaria Night, which goes on for several nights. It is a wonderful chance to go checkout the observatory and telescopes. They have guides there to answer any questions and everything is set up to make a wonderful evening.

I hope everyone enjoys the pictures.
