Solar Eclispe on Aug 21st, 2017  We will not be hosting any events for the eclipse, nor will there be any viewing on the observatory property for the public. The observatory and its property will be closed to the public for this event. Elcipse glasses are no longer available for sale at all the Half Price Bookstore locations in Columbus. They are now sold out! Note: some of the glasses sold at the Columbus Half Price Books Stores will not have the ISO number printed on them. They are still safe and come from a recommended vender. The observatory is not selling eclipse glasses at this time.


Important:  Be sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time. We often do not have at the door tickets available.
