Tour the Solar System and the Universe!

***This meetup is currently full, however you are welcome to join the waitlist. The planetarium only seats 60. If you are currently RSVP'd and cannot make it, please update your RSVP as soon as possible. We want to make sure folks that want to go can.***

See the grand re-opening show of the OSU Planetarium! Ohio State has recently reopened their newly remodeled planetarium and we have our own private showing! On the domed ceiling, watch as we travel from our sky, through the solar system, through our galaxy, and beyond. This show is meant to be an introduction to our universe and is great for kids, too!

$5 per person, cash only, at the door.

Public parking is available in the Tuttle Garage. Questions? Please email Ed, [masked].

Interested in meeting up for dinner before the show? Please RSVP to the dinner meetup:

    I had gone to the planetarium at OSU on it's grand re-opening to the public October 12th this year. Was the program on the 15th put together special for HCCO?

    • Ed S.

      The program on the 15th was the same as on Oct 12th.

    Enchanting, beautiful, informative. Thanks, Ed, for setting up this event. "I have loved the stars too fondly / To be fearful of the night."

    Sorry for cancelling so late, but I came down with a cold and I cannot stop coughing. I was hoping the stuff I took would work, but it hasn't, and I don't want to ruin it for everyone. I hope we do this again.

    • Sharon M.

      Sorry to hear that, hope you feel better soon!!

    Hi All! Whew, this is a popular meetup! The planetarium only seats 60 and we have a few people on the waitlist.

    Just a quick reminder, if something comes up and you or a guest of yours can't make it, please unRSVP them/yourself as soon as possible so that others may attend.

    Based on this early success, I'd say it is likely we will do this again in the future. If you can't make it this time, won't worry!

    Thanks for being awesome!

    I've been a member of HCCO for several months, but have yet to attend an event. This sounds like a great place to start.

    • Jack W.

      I won't be attending after all. Hope to make a different event soon. My RSVP is updated.

      Sorry you can't make it! Hope to meet you soon!

    I would like to bring a 10-year-old friend. Would you please place him on the waiting list? Or he could squeeze in the seat with me! He was very excited when he heard about the event.

    • HCCO C.

      Hi Maggie! Just responded to you over email.

      November 4, 2013

  • HCCO C.

    Hi All! Whew! We are almost full! The planetarium only seats 60. I have set this event so that once we hit 60, there will be a waitlist. If something comes up and you know you or a guest of yours can't make it, please unRSVP yourself as soon as possible so that others may attend. Based on this early success, I'd say it is likely we will do this again in the future. If you can't make it this time, won't worry! Thanks for being awesome!

    We haven't been able to make it to an event in a long time and we are looking forward to bringing the kids to this with us.

  • HCCO C.

    Dinner has a separate meetup,

    I changed the wording above to hopefully make that more clear. Sorry for any confusion!

  • Maura Moran R.

    Sounds like a great event! Dave & I are in for dinner if that gets scheduled.

    October 22, 2013

  • Wes M.

    Ed, I would like RJ to come too, but didn't see a way to make that request. May she attend?

    October 20, 2013

    • Ed S.

      Certainly RJ can attend. Just click 2.

      October 21, 2013

  • Jeff

    Great idea, Ed! Charlene and I could join dinner before the show, say at 6:30.

    October 18, 2013

  • Jessica M.

    I only had the option to say "+2" on my RSVP, but I'd like to actually bring 3 other people (my husband and two kids). Is that okay?

    October 16, 2013

    • Ed S.

      Husband and two kids. No problem. So noted.

      October 16, 2013

  • Rita M.

    I would love to attend; however, i will be at skepticon. Hope there will be another scheduled.
