In 2011, the Cincinnati Astronomical Society (CAS) celebrated its 100th anniversary of serving amateur astronomers from all around the Tri-State. Our centennial marked a long tradition of sharing the wonders of the night sky with the general public, students, teachers and scouts of all ages.
100 Years of Sharing CAS Presentation

Thanks to your generosity as a member and a donor, in 2014 the Cincinnati Astronomical Society (CAS) brought the wonders of the Universe to hundreds of K-12 students, college students, teachers, scouts, kids and adults.
On Giving Tuesday, please consider a tax-deductible donation to help CAS bring more of the universe down to earth.

Looking up
In addition to member programs at the Cleves, Ohio location our talented and dedicated volunteers brought the universe to dozens of classrooms, area parks, nature centers, libraries and other civic organizations.
Our members hosted free stargazes at Huffman Park in Fairfield, The Fernald Preserve, Miami Whitewater Forest, Lake Isabella and Woodland Mound Parks, Keehner Park in West Chester, Cowan Lake and Caesar Creek State Parks and the Izaak Walton League. Special events included the annual Great Outdoor Weekend.

Our family friendly “CAS 2nd Saturdays” public programs included topics from Jupiter to the Theory of Everything. The monthly “CASKids” brought the universe to hundreds of youngsters who explored the universe with hands-on experiments and viewed the night sky through our 4 large telescopes. 

Volunteers brought our passion for science education to Space Day at iSpace, The Cincinnati Observatory’s ScopeOut Astronomy Fair, The Cincinnati Museum Center, Freedom Elementary School’s Family Science Night, Lakota East “Pi” Day, The University of Cincinnati Science & Engineering Expo, the Ultimate Nature Educator Expo and astronomy classes for Cincinnati State students.

CAS Kids
2015 will be another great year for astronomy programming as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s famous Theory of General Relativity and in July NASA’s  “New Horizons” reveals the secrets of far-away Pluto. 

With your help we can offer even more for CAS members and the Great Cincinnati community.
