Barlow Planetarium

Planet

The Barlow Planetarium is right next door to the Weis, and its presenters are known for their kid-friendly shows.  “We keep the sound down, and the lights up until our audience is comfortable,” our host told us.  The Planetarium has a 48-foot projection dome, interactive keypads at each seat, and a variety of shows, all ending with a tour of the current nighttime sky – stars, constellations and planets.

    I have not been to this planetarium but have gone to the one here at YSU. When they panned back to show us our galaxy, and the one right next to it, pointing to our little tiny sun in the mix, I quickly felt so very tiny in a heavens so vast. It’s humbling.

      Agreed. It also makes me sad that the skies are so lit up in the city that we can hardly see any stars.

Been there, done that? Or wannna go? Let me know!
