of John E. Ventre, Historian for the Cincinnati Observatory
John Ventre's first exposure to the Cincinnati Observatory was in the late 1940s when he visited it while on a Boy Scout field trip--this trip triggered a passion for the Observatory that never ended. He taught astronomy at the University of Cincinnati, he served as the first administrator / director of the Cincinnati Observatory Center (the non-profit organization which now leases the Observatory from the University of Cincinnati and operates the Observatory), and he is currently helping to restore the Cincinnati Observatory to a working 19th Century astronomical observatory. He is also the resident “Luna-tic;” everything about the Moon fascinates him and often presents lectures on the subject.

John Ventre writes on the history of Astronomy for the SpaceWatchtower Blog, which is a project of Friends of the Zeiss.
