There’s A Dazzling Astronomy Festival Coming To One Of The Darkest Regions In Nevada

It’s no secret to Nevadans that the Silver State is home to one of the darkest skies in the country. The proof is there every time we go out and look at the night sky. Nevada is a big state and the majority of our communities are small, which means they boast an extremely small footprint when it comes to light pollution. Less light pollution means darker skies. Darker skies means brighter stars and planets to gaze at! We’re extremely lucky when it comes to star gazing and we know it. In fact, there’s even an astronomy festival taking place very soon that you’ll definitely want to attend. This is a true “only in Nevada” experience that you don’t want to miss out on.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
