Seating is first come, first served for up to 60 people. Groups of 15 or more may schedule a special showing of any planetarium program by calling 715-346-2208. There is a cost of $15 per group for these special presentations.
On Monday evenings, the “Night Skies of Fall” program is offered in the planetarium at 8 p.m., also free of charge. An optional observatory visit for sky viewing through the telescope may follow if skies are clear.
The planetarium is located on the second floor of the UW-Stevens Point Science Building at the corner of Reserve Street and Fourth Avenue. Parking is available in Lot X near the building entrance, and is free in all university lots after 7 p.m.
