The 2015-2016 season at O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium features more than 30 Friday-evening public shows. Guests are encouraged to arrive early for best seats. No late seating is permitted. Public planetarium shows, with the exception of Cosmic Concerts, include a live-narrated “seasonal stargazing” segment in addition to the featured full-dome program. The Young Harris College Observatory features a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and is open at 9 p.m. on the same Friday evenings the planetarium is open, if skies are clear. The observatory is located approximately 1.5 miles from campus at Twiggs Overlook on the exit road leading from Brasstown Valley Resort. Maps are available at the planetarium. Observing sessions last up to one hour.
