Featuring a live presenter and using the planetarium’s digital and optical star projectors to their fullest, this traditional star show allows audiences to explore the heavens as they appear above the mountains of north Georgia. Learn how to identify the planets and stars currently visible in the night sky, take a guided tour of the constellations and hear some of their fascinating stories.
Young Harris College’s O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium features a state-of-the-art fulldome digital projection system, the Sky-Skan Definiti, along with a GOTO Chronos Space Simulator star projector in a 40-foot dome theater with 5.1 surround sound. This unique combination represents the next generation in planetarium technology, creating an immersive and engaging image over the entire dome surface and a powerful “you-are-there” experience for the audience.
Rollins Planetarium was made possible through the philanthropy of Wayne and Grace Rollins.
O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium is located on the YHC campus in Young Harris. From US Highway 76/GA Highway 515, turn into the campus at the traffic light in Young Harris, then take a left at the end of the street. Rollins Planetarium is located in Maxwell Center, the second building on the left.
Planetarium shows, with the exception of Laser and Cosmic Concerts, include a live-narrated “seasonal stargazing” segment in addition to the featured full-dome program.
