what:

TWO SMALL PIECES OF GLASS:
THE AMAZING TELESCOPE
Four hundred years ago, Galileo’s simple adjustment to a child’s spyglass revealed for the first time an infinite and perplexing universe to our eyes and imaginations. Join us today, as the world‘s great telescopes gaze ever further into the distant past — and into our future. Produced to engage and appeal to audiences of all ages, this new fulldome show traces the history of the telescope since its invention. From the moons of Jupiter to the rings of Saturn and the structure of galaxies, it explores how telescopes have helped us understand our place in space and how they continue to expand our understanding of the cosmos. The soundtrack for this odyssey was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.

young harris planetarium near the mail office


The Rollins Planetarium is open to the public at least 30 Friday evenings per year. Shows begin at 8:00 PM, except during May, June & July, when they start at 8:30 PM. Latecomers are not allowed entrance, so plan to arrive a little early to get the best seats. If skies are clear, the Young Harris College Observatory will be open following the planetarium shows. The observatory is located about a mile and a half from the planetarium, at the Twiggs Overlook on the exit road leading from the Brasstown Valley Resort. You will be able to look through a telescope to observe planets, stars, clusters and many other astronomical phenomena. For a recorded message about the current planetarium show and which dates it will be presented, please call (706) 379-5195.

The planetarium show was great. They've upgraded their equipment since the last time I was there to include a state of the art full-dome digital projection system to complement the fantastic Chronos star projector. The effect is immersive and excellent.

The State's budget cuts in education are also noticeable as a small admission is being charged to get in now. Adults are $3 each and students (children of school age) are $2 each. YHC students, faculty, and staff get in free with their YHC ID.

The next show is called "Season of Light" and will be presented on November 13 & 20, and December 4 & 11.
