GRANVILLE - Are the skies cloudy or bright? No matter, for the "January Skies" presentation in Denison's planetarium will take place rain or (moon) shine. The open house is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday (Feb. 8) in the planetarium in Denison's F.W. Olin Science Hall. Lauren Jones, assistant professor of physics and the director of Swasey Observatory, will host the star show with assistance from physics students.
Denison's F.W. Olin Science Hall
The Denison planetarium contains a Zeiss ZKP3 state-of-the-art planetarium projector. This instrument is housed in an 8-meter dome and is controlled by a computer.
Jones, who joined the Denison faculty this past fall, earned her bachelor's degree at Vassar College and three master of science degrees (Moscow State University, Russia, University of Alabama, and the University of Florida). She also earned her doctorate at the University of Florida, where she organized and taught weekly open houses at the university's teaching observatory.
Seating is limited to about 35 persons in the planetarium. If additional seating is needed, the show will be repeated at 7:30 p.m. No reservations are needed for this free presentation.
