The Bushman Planetarium inside Agenstein Hall will host a public showing of “Journey to the Stars” next week.
According to a press release from Missouri Western State University, the showing will give viewers the opportunity to witness the life and death of stars in our sky, including our own sun. It features extraordinary images captured by telescopes on Earth and in space, combined with stunning never-before-seen images of physics-based simulations. It is narrated by Whoopi Goldberg.
“Journey to the Stars” will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17.
Planetarium tickets must be purchased in advance, either online at missouriwestern.edu/
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.
