Who we are

The Arne Slettebak Planetarium is located in Smith Laboratory on The Ohio State University main campus. Operated since 1968 by the Department of Astronomy, it is a 63-seat 30-foot dome theater brand new Sky Skan Digital Sky Dark Matter Rendering Engine and Scidome XD projectors. We are actively developing new shows and training presenters on our new system. Many of our programs will return in some form as we get back on our feet.
