Planetarium to Feature Free ‘Light Years From Andromeda’ Show
For the City-Times
The Allen F. Blocher Planetarium is holding a program entitled, “Light Years from Andromeda” daily program at 2 PM.
As the light speeds across the light years, over the course of centuries, the primitives on a planet form cultures and civilizations–and begin to wonder about the universe around them. When the light finally reaches these people, on a planet known as Earth, some of the descendants of the early hunters have just escaped Earth’s bonds to visit their Moon.
The program runs through April 13.
The planetarium, as well as the Arthur J. Pejsa Observatory, are located in the Science Building on the UW-Stevens Point campus. The Science building is at the southwest corner of Fourth Avenue and Reserve Streets- 2001 Fourth Avenue.
These facilities are operated and maintained by staff in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UW-Stevens Point. Dr. Randy W. Olson is the planetarium and observatory director. For more information call (715) 346-2208.
