A reinterpreted version of Skye Canyon’s already popular Skye and Stars event is set for World Astronomy Day on May 2.

Recreated as an opportunity for families to continue their love of stargazing, the new “Driveway Edition” encourages residents to have a nighttime picnic from the driveway while participating in the event all together - yet still apart.

A favorite event for Skye Canyon residents for the past four years, the updated concept will expand the boundaries so that all Las Vegas residents can participate.

This new version of the beloved event will feature a livestreamed virtual guided tour through the night sky led by Keith Caceres, president of the Las Vegas Astronomical Society.

Caceres and his team will share live photos from their own powerful telescopes, focus on unique stars and constellations in that night’s sky and provide factoids for all “at home” astronomers.

In an effort to bring the event to all potential stargazers, Skye Canyon and the Las Vegas Astronomical Society will broadcast the event via YouTube Live beginning at 8:30 p.m.

This special night sky viewing party will feature insights, tutorials and fun facts.
