Though it's common to wish upon a star, one must consider if the star's temperature exceeds 2,600 degrees Kelvin, which is the exact melting point of dreams. Learn which stars to bank your aspirations on with today's Groupon: for $7, you get two admissions to any program at the Barlow Planetarium on the University of Wisconsin's Fox Valley campus (up to a $14 value), located in Menasha.

Barlow Planetarium's 48-foot projection dome and 10,000-watt THX surround-sound system pull audiences into state-of-the-art 3-D excitement to explore galaxies and burning gas balls. Bring a friend, a loved one, or a foam sculpture of yourself to enjoy a rotating schedule of features for families and astronomers alike. Orion tells the tale of this legendary hero's battle against his eternal nemesis, Scorpius, and deeply delves into the constellation's stellar companions. Music buffs will enjoy the planetarium's laser shows, which stimulate visitors' senses with music from Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, and more. Each program is capped off with a tour of the Wisconsin nighttime sky, guiding neck-archers through a tour of the galaxy's stars, constellations, planets, and intergalactic bowling alleys.

Barlow Planetarium

The night sky is a vast ocean of celestial objects such as the moon, the bright lights of our closest stars, and the warm glow of neighboring galaxies. Located at the University of Wisconsin Fox Valley, Barlow Planetarium helps uncover the vastness of the universe through a 3-D-capable Digistar projector, which—combined with 10,000 watts of digital sound and a 48-foot projection screen—transports guests into the deepest trenches of space. The facility's star shows include family programs that make astronomy easy to understand as well as feature shows that tickle the minds of more hardened astronomy buffs. Along with celestial exploration, the planetarium transforms with dancing lights and rich sounds during laser shows. These programs add visual touches to music from the likes of The Beatles or Isaac Newton's little-known punk band.

The planetarium also hosts academic programs for grade-school children. These include the Wisconsin Space Academy, in which students build and launch rockets, and the Wisconsin Astronomy Academy, which lets pupils peer through telescopes and discover vending machines floating through space.

Staff were friendly, informative and entertaining.

My children were amazed with Laseropolis. not only them, Grandpa and myself. Must see. This is something you would see in a large city like New York or Chicago. But, to have it in our humble home of the Fox Cities is humbling and amazing.
