Las Vegas is a town full of stars. Today’s installment includes another kind of star: those shining brightly in the crisp, clear desert sky.
Tomorrow night the Las Vegas Astronomical Society is hosting its second annual Stars and Stardust: Sidewalk Astronomy in the Neon Boneyard at the Neon Museum. Members of the Astronomical Society bring their telescopes and are more than happy to explain to you what you are looking at. The Museum staff will turn off all the lights in the Neon Boneyard to eliminate all local light pollution.
I have been to the Las Vegas Astronomical Society events before when I owned a telescope. (I bought it when I lived in Manhattan. How else to keep up with the Jones?… and then Bensley chewed one of the lenses as a puppy. Delicious!) The events are truly a joyous homage to Mother Nature.
Do you see the Big Dipper?
There will be a solar system scavenger hunt for kids.
Of course, the event is FREE. And there will even be FREE hot chocolate. Star gazing kicks off at 6 and ends at 9.
Who says Las Vegas isn’t star-struck?
