Stars and Stardust: Sidewalk Astronomy in The Neon Boneyard Jan. 24
Kick off 2015 at the Neon Museum with a special night of star gazing and family time at its second-annual “Stars and Stardust: Sidewalk Astronomy In the Neon Boneyard,” to be held Sat., Jan. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. 

Held in partnership with the Las Vegas Astronomical Society, the program is free and appropriate for people of all ages (children must be accompanied by adults).

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 telescope equipment to observe the night sky. Children can also enjoy a self-paced solar system scavenger hunt activity and there will be complimentary hot chocolate while supplies last.

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. No registration is required.
