The Bushman Planetarium at Missouri Western State University presents a public showing of “Nine Planets and Counting” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13. The planetarium is located inside Agenstein Hall.

“Nine Planets and Counting” gives viewers a tour to explore the variety of objects that populate our solar system. Along the way, we’ll examine each planet individually and then step back to look at the big picture: rocky worlds compared to gas giants and more. What is a planet, anyway? The answer may surprise you.

The Bushman Planetarium features a Digistar 4 projection system and a dome that is tilted slightly, rather than directly overhead, making viewing easier. A 17-channel stereo sound system enhances the viewing experience.

Planetarium tickets must be purchased in advance, either online at missouriwestern.edu/planetarium or in person at Agenstein Hall, room 140 during regular business hours (8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday).

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children, students, seniors and military.
