The Allen F. Blocher Planetarium, on the second floor of the Science Building at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, will offer shows on Monday and Wednesday evenings in June and July. They include:
» "Cosmic Colors" will be shown at 8 p.m. July 3, July 10, July 17, July 17, July 24 and July 31. The show takes viewers on a journey across the electromagnetic spectrum to discover why the sky is blue, how we see colors and how X-rays and infrared radiation works.
» "The Endless Horizon" will be shown at 8 p.m. today, July 1, July 8, July 15, July 22 and July 29. The show, narrated by actor Patrick Stewart of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," explores historic innovations in science and technology, such as telescopes and satellites, and how they've advanced our views of the solar system and universe.
Both shows are free and open to the public. The planetarium doors open 20 minutes before the scheduled programs. For more information, call 715-346-2208 or go to www.uwsp.edu/physastr/plan_obs.
