Skye and Stars Driveway Edition

Home / Skye & Stars

A reinterpreted version of Skye Canyon’s popular Skye and Stars event is set for World Astronomy Day on Saturday, May 2nd. Re-created as an opportunity for families to continue their love of stargazing, the new “Driveway Edition” encourages residents to have a nighttime picnic from their driveway while participating in the event all together yet apart. The updated concept will also feature a live-streamed 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.
