Birth of the Universe, UWM Manfred Olson Planetarium, Friday, 11. January 2019

Experience the first light of the universe with the UWM Manfred Olson Planetarium’s Birth of the Universe. Starting January 11, the program will take visitors on a tour of the origins and development of the cosmos dating back almost 14 billion years. In this live, interactive presentation, visitors will learn about the clues that astronomers use to understand the birth and transformation of the universe, including the motion of distant galaxies and radiation generated by the early universe. The program will include an indoor stargazing session for visitors to enjoy a tour of the local night sky free of light pollution followed by the opportunity to ask questions of astronomer and Planetarium Director, Jean Creighton. Birth of the Universe takes place every Friday from January 11 to February 22 with two nightly showings at 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. and 8:15 to 9:15 p.m. At $5 per ticket, this fun and affordable program is open to everybody. Admission is $4 for current UWM students and free for registered UWM Planetarium members and Planetarium Club members. Tickets are available on the planetarium website and in person 30 minutes before the program begins in the lobby outside of the Planetarium.
