Mars Quest

May 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


A chronicle of our centuries-long cultural, scientific fascination with the red planet. Set in a “three-act” form, Patrick Stewart weaves a dramatic narrative. In “Homage,” we trace the earliest observations of Mars. “Mars In Focus” details the Mars of our time — as seen in the night sky, through binoculars and telescopes, and from our Mars explorations. And finally, we dream about the first landing in “Mars in the Future.”

Our shows are open to the public in the Allen F. Blocher Planetarium. The planetarium is located on the second floor of the Science Building, by the Foucault pendulum, right above the east main entrance. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Direct access is obtained through the east entrance.

Planetarium programs for groups (schools, scouts, organizations, etc.) can be arranged during our academic year.  Call 715-346-2120 or email


There is no charge for our public programs, although donations of $1-$2 per attendee will be greatly appreciated to allow us to continue these public programs for our community.


Parking is free on campus for our guests only on Saturdays and Sundays. From Monday-Friday, the UWSP parking lots are enforced 2 am – 7 pm. Please visit this website for more details about parking options, rules, and regulations.
