Venus is often an easy to spot highlight as we get into the dog days of summer, but Deans got a few other lesser profiled happenings and constellations in the late summer skies that are worth pointing your telescope toward to provide tips for. We also dive deep into the mysterious Norwood UFO Report of 1949. Several carnival goers insisted they saw UFO activity happening all over the skies over Norwood, Ohio... but what was it really?
We're also excited to welcome host of Infinity and Beyond, a web series from Astronomy Magazine, Abigail Bollenbach (@ABastronomy). Having just finished high school, Abigail has wasted no time pursuing her mission of getting other young people in her generation excited about astronomy and science through her web series and active social media presence.

Dean Regas is the Astronomer for the Cincinnati Observatory and a renowned educator, a national popularizer of astronomy and an expert in observational astronomy.
Anna Hehman is the Director of Development for the Cincinnati Observatory. Her official duties include ensuring the financial security of the Observatory and securing support for its outreach programs as well as exploring relationships with potential funders. Anna also has a Marketing background and manages the Observatory's social media, where she resists the urge to post adorable animal videos on the O's social media accounts with almost 100% success.
