Through the Looking Glass

The Legacy of Alvan Clark & Sons

Take a bite out of History! Join us for a lunchtime presentation and an afternoon of history at the Cincinnati Observatory on April 7, 2023 from 12-1 p.m. Please bring your own lunch. Drink refreshments will be provided, plus a presentation on our newest exhibit, Through the Looking Glass: The Legacy of American Telescope Makers, Alvan Clark and Sons.


Observatory exhibits, gift shop, and its buildings and grounds will be open during and after the presentation. Weather permitting, we’ll have solar viewing through our historic 1845 Merz and Mahler 11” refracting telescope in the adjacent Mitchel Building after the presentation.


History Bites is one of our newest program offerings that will run with each of our three temporary exhibits this year. Things are always looking up at the Cincinnati Observatory!
