Stargazing with Hancock County Parks

. August 1, 2017.

Interact with the stars like never before! The planetarium at Oakwoods Nature Preserve allows children and adults alike to see the planets, stars and galaxies using actual footage from live satellites. The planetarium seats up to 27 people at a time. A projector illuminates the entire dome with the night’s sky in awe-inspiring detail. On August 9, the topic will be “Mythology of the Sky” answering questions such as how did the constellations get their names and pointing them out in sky. The planetarium can be rented for classrooms, Boy and Girl Scout troops, and private events. Visit or call 419-425-7275 or “Hancock Park District” on Facebook.
