Oct. 25, 2019—The Bushman Planetarium at Missouri Western State University presents “Hubble Vision 2” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29.
Since its launch in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has provided incredible images in unprecedented detail to astronomers and made an astonishing array of discoveries. “Hubble Vision 2” takes the best and most exciting Hubble images and woven them into an engaging story of cosmic exploration.
The Bushman Planetarium in Agenstein Hall 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 not available at the door.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children, students, seniors and military.
