Both the Allen F. Blocher Planetarium and the Arthur J. Pejsa Observatory are located in the Science Building on the UW-Stevens Point campus. The planetarium consists of a 7.3m diameter dome that houses a Spitz 1024 projector (installed in 1998). The planetarium is located on the second floor of the Science Building directly above the east main entrance. The planetarium presents public programs through the academic year and during most summers. There is no charge for our public programs. Planetarium programs for groups (schools, scouts, organizations, etc.) can be arranged during our academic year and our summer sessions. There is a $15.00 charge per group for these presentations.  The observatory is located on the fourth floor of the Science Building and houses a Meade 0.4m telescope.
