Wild Ocean planetarium showApril 19, 2024–The Bushman Planetarium will present a public showing of “Wild Ocean” at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 25th. The planetarium is located inside Agenstein Hall on Missouri Western State University campus, in room 147.

Plunge into an underwater feeding frenzy, an epic struggle for survival where whales, sharks, dolphins, seals, gannets and billions of fish collide with mankind during one of nature’s greatest migration spectacles. Filmed off the Wild Coast of South Africa and set to the rhythm of the local people, Wild Ocean reveals the economic and cultural impact of the ocean while celebrating the communal efforts to protect our invaluable marine resources.

The Bushman Planetarium features a Digistar 4 projection system and a dome that is tilted slightly, rather than directly overhead, making viewing easier. The Dolby 5.1 surround sound system enhances the viewing experience.

Cost of attendance is $5 for adults, $3 for children, students, military and seniors. Planetarium tickets must be purchased in advance, either online at missouriwestern.edu/planetarium or in person at Agenstein Hall 140 during regular business hours. The business office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (closed for lunch from 1 to 2 p.m.).
