June Night Sky Viewing - LOCATION CHANGED

Valley of Fire State Park

WHAT: View the night sky with the Las Vegas Astronomical Society (LVAS)

WHEN: Saturday, June 25 from 8:00 – 11:00pm

WHERE: In Group Site #3; Parking in Beehives lot. 0.25mi hike on paved road to viewing location.

Closer spots and ADA spots available- email kwolfe@parks.nv.gov or communicate your needs to the Ranger on duty at the event.

** Telescope viewing with the Las Vegas Astronomical Society will begin at 9pm in Group Site #3


Arrive any time but come early to meet with the astronomers and let your eyes adjust to the dark. You must be back in your vehicle, ready to exit the parking area, by 11pm at the latest.

We recommend bringing cool beverages, snacks, and fold out chairs to sit and relax. If you bring a flashlight, make sure it has a RED setting or attach red cellophane. Bright white lights disturb other guests and make it difficult for your eyes to adjust and see the stars! You may also bring your own telescope if you have one.


PLAN AHEAD: Cell service in the area can be unreliable. We recommend looking up the route you will be taking ahead of time and saving directions to your device.


NOTE: As the park itself closes at sunset, all participants must be in the designated area. Commercial photography is prohibited.



- $10 for NV Residents per vehicle,

- $15 for Out of State Guests per vehicle.

(If you have a NEVADA STATE PARKS Annual Pass or a receipt from entry to the park earlier on the same day you do not have to pay the above fee!)
