Stargazing event returns to Neon Museum

Posted at 7:04 PM, Dec 31, 2015

The Neon Museum in downtown Las Vegas will host its third annual “Stars and Stardust: Sidewalk Astronomy in the Neon Boneyard” from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 16.

The evening will begin in the dramatically illuminated Neon Boneyard before the lights are dimmed to afford a clearer view of the stars. Participants in the “Stars and Stardust” astronomy event will enjoy using a variety of professional telescope equipment to observe the night sky. Children will also enjoy a self-paced solar system scavenger hunt activity and making space-themed scratchboard art.

This program is part of the Neon Museum’s ongoing effort to provide enriching educational experiences to people of all ages in a culturally important setting.

Admission to Stars and Stardust is free, but advanced registration for particular time is required; times available include 6 to 7 p.m.; 7 to 8 p.m. or 8 to 9 p.m. Go to www.neonmuseum.org/happenings to register.
