“Halloween at the Planetarium”

Rollins Planetarium
Reviewed 18 November 2012

This was something different and fun to experience and it was on the campus at the Young Harris College. We would like to go back in the "usual season" to see more but overall it was a neat viewing. You can also view the stars in a powerful microscope afterwards but we had a hard time finding it. I will definitely get better directions next time because it's a must.

if you want to have a cosmic experience, visit the planetarium. the experience is surreal and gives you that kind of funky out of body experience. If you are prone to motion sickness, wait to eat afterwards. Brothers restaurant stays open late and is a short drive away,

The Rollins Planetarium, at Young Harris College, is a great inexpensive family outing. They have commercially-prepared planetarium shows most Friday nights (check website for details) followed by star-gazing at their nearby observatory, weather-permitting. They now charge admission ($3 adult, $2 child), and the shows are very popular, so get there early! No advance ticket sales - first come, first served. They have a very high quality projection system (geeks can check the website for the specs) especially for a small, liberal arts college in North Georgia.

My name is Ron and over the holidays my family visited the planetarium at the college at Young Harris. The put on a wonderful display of lights showcasing the constellations. It is free to the public as well.
Donations are accepted. There is also a large telescope which is made available, weather permitting. It is definitely something fun to do for about an hour and a half in the evening. Kids would enjoy it.
