When most people think of star-gazing in Las Vegas, they envision themselves watching a number of celebrities dressed in their finest, cavorting on the Strip. But the Planetarium and Observatory offers something a little more out of this world.
Depending on the time of year and the weather, each session focuses on a variety of celestial objects including the moon, planets, stars, star clusters and other out-of-this-world phenomena. Once the latitude, longitude, time and date are set, visitors are able to see a projection of what treasures the night sky will have to offer on that particular evening.
The planetarium is fairly small, so be sure to get there early as it fills up fast. Also, once the presentation starts there is no admittance.
Whether you're looking for an educational experience or just something unique to see in Vegas, the Planetarium and Observatory will suit your needs.
