Travel at the speed of light at UW-Stevens Point’s planetarium

Travel through the galaxy at the speed of light at the Allen F. Blocher Planetarium at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

The show “Light Years from Andromeda” will be offered at 2 p.m. Sundays, March 30, April 6, 13 and 27 (no show April 20). Open to the public free of charge, the show follows a beam of light on its journey from the Andromeda galaxy across space toward Earth, as the centuries go by on Earth and its people speculate about 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

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 presentations.
