George Coleman Planetarium

The George Coleman Planetarium is part of North Georgia College & State University and every Friday during the semester, the planetarium puts on a free educational show. The projections are detailed and with all of the special lighting effects, viewers really feel like they're on a voyage into the solar system. The projections of the sun, stars, and five planets you can see without a telescope are shot onto a massive 30-foot diameter dome. With the capacity to replicate the sky at any time of day, from anywhere in the world, at any epoch, the show will definitely transport you into the starry ether.
