In celebration of International Astronomy Day, Skye Canyon’s will hold the sixth annual Skye & Stars stargazing event on Saturday May 15. This event is hosted by Skye Canyon along with the Las Vegas Astronomical Society (LVAS)
With safety in mind, gates of Skye Canyon Park open at 6 p.m. for picnicking, music, lawn games, and food trucks with constellation viewing beginning after dark from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. This is a free, family-friendly event. Donations for LVAS, a nonprofit organization of amateur astronomers formed to promote astronomy in Southern Nevada will be accepted during the event.
Using telescopes, strategically arranged throughout the park, and cleaned between each guest usage, along with astrophotography, and video cameras, LVAS volunteers will use a high-powered laser that can point directly to celestial events as they guide attendees on a tour of the desert sky.
This is part of the Thrive@Skye event series; guests are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs and enjoy a picnic. Food will be available for purchase from local food trucks including the widely popular Maize St. and Alpha Dawg. Resident favorite Local 808 will provide beverages. In addition, there will be a giveaway of special commemorative Skye & Stars 2021 event pins and a raffle in which some lucky attendee will win their own telescope.
For the past 5 years this has been a can’t-miss event for Skye Canyon residents, this year will once again feature an in-person, guided tour through the night sky led by Keith Caceres, president of the Las Vegas Astronomical Society. Caceres and his team will position high-power telescopes throughout the park aimed at specific and noteworthy stars and constellations and will use a powerful, high-tech laser pointer to further showcase and point out interesting elements in the night sky.
