Anderson Hancock Planetarium
The Anderson Hancock Planetarium at Marietta College is just one of a handful of planetariums in the country to feature the Goto Chronos hybrid system, which can replicate the night sky from thousands of years in the past to thousands of years in the future, and from countless vantage points in the Universe.
