Maybe you’re interested in astronomy, but don’t have time to become club member.  You’re in luck.  The clubs often organize and host public events.  Even better, they are often FREE.  The events planed for this year offer the ability to view the stars and planets, learn more about our solar system and the wonder of outer space.


Visiting planetariums is another great way to learn more about the solar system, and there are many located across Northeast Ohio.  We recently visited the planetarium at Cleveland Museum of Natural history, and the planetarium show was one of the highlights of our trip, the parents and kids loved it.

If you are in the Youngstown area you should check out the Ward Beecher Planetarium at Youngstown State University.  They have a great schedule of free public show.

Each planetarium offers different shows and are open to the public at varying times.
