Seeing! A Photon’s Journey Across Space, Time, and Mind

March 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Follow the journey of a single photon as it is produced in a distant star, before travelling across the vast expanse of space to land on someone’s retina. This fulldome planetarium show explores some of the fascinating processes of the cosmos, from astrophysics to the biology of the eye and brain. Funded through a generous grant from ZEISS, the show is narrated by astronomer and science communicator, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The Allen F. Blocher Planetarium is located in the Science Building, 2001 Fourth Avenue, on the UW-Stevens Point campus. The planetarium consists of a 7.3m diameter dome that houses a DIGISTAR LITE projector (installed in 2020).
