July 29, 2019—The Bushman Planetarium at Missouri Western State University will have a public showing of “Wonders of the Universe” at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, after the Family Fun Day practice at Chiefs Training Camp. The planetarium is located in Agenstein Hall, directly across Downs Drive from Lot H, the primary parking lost used by Chiefs fans during camp.
Peer deep into space through the eyes of the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope and travel back billions of years in time to witness the birth of the universe. Witness the formation of galaxies, explore some of the most wondrous nebulae and astronomical structures yet discovered, fly deep into our own Milky Way galaxy and return home to Earth on a spectacular tour through the solar system.
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.
