The Ohio State Department of Astronomy is home to the Arne Slettebak Planetarium, located in Smith Laboratory on the university’s Columbus campus. Its recently renovated 63-seat theater has a 30-foot dome and a state-of-the-art projection system.

The Slettebak Planetarium features a 12-inch Meade computer-controlled telescope, and astronomy graduate students lead viewing sessions there for undergraduates once a semester.

CCAPP cosmologists are able to use the planetarium on BASIS.
