Explore ‘Galaxies’ at UW-Stevens Point’s planetarium

Take a ride through our galaxy and beyond at the Allen F. Blocher Planetarium at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

The show “Galaxies” will be offered at 2 p.m. the Sundays of Jan. 26, Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23 and March 2 and 9. Open to the public free of charge, it takes a closer look at the stars, star clusters, gas and dust that makes up the Milky Way and the other billions of galaxies in the universe.

On Monday evenings, the “Night Sky” program is offered at 8 p.m. in the planetarium to look in detail at objects in the current night sky. However, actual sky viewings will not be held while the Arthur J. Pejsa Observatory is being upgraded.

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. and on weekends. For more information, go to www.uwsp.edu/physastr.
