The Bushman Planetarium at Missouri Western will offer shows beginning at 11:30 a.m. most days that there’s a public practice scheduled. There will not be shows on Sundays or on Saturday, Aug. 1. There will be three shows on American Family Fun Day, at 11:30, 12:30 and 1:30.
The planetarium’s state-of-the-art digital projection system features a dome that slightly tilted, rather than directly overhead, for easier viewing. Show topics range from the furthest reaches of space to the deepest parts of the ocean. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children and senior citizens.
