between JANUARY 22 - MARCH ​15 and between MARCH ​25 - May 10. ​​


Regular public shows include a 25-min presentation focusing on the current night sky of Central WI (bright stars, constellations, planets, etc.)

Most regular public shows will be scheduled on Sunday afternoons at 2PM, and a small number of programs will be on Saturdays. Planetarium doors will open at about half-hour prior to the beginning of a show. We can accommodate up to 55 people per show, on a first-come, first-served basis. 

On select Sundays (shows marked with * below) we will offer special programs for children and families, starting at 3:00 PM.
The programs marked with * are designed for the youngest age students and families. We start at 3:00PM with a 30-minute book reading session (in room A201, next to the planetarium), and continue with the planetarium showing at 3:30 PM. 


Note: Some of the public planetarium shows will be rented for a fee that ranges between $60-$100 per show per three-day rental. Donations of $1-$2 per attendee will be greatly appreciated to allow us to continue these public programs for our community of all ages.
