Event Details

Experience the wonder and awe of the dark skies above Northstar California during our popular summer Tahoe Star Tours!

 

On Thursday and Saturday evenings the tours will be offered at the Dark Sky Cosmoarium, which offers convenient access for guests lodging or visiting the resort, located near the entrance to Northstar on the lower level of the Castle Peak parking area.  Featuring wide, unobstructed horizons for viewing, the Cosmoarium provides Tahoe Star Tours participants with comfortable seating, fire pits, outdoor heaters and blankets, complimentary hot chocolate, Starbucks coffee, Aquafina water and s’mores, as well as convenient, free on-site parking just a short walk from the viewing site.

 

Star Guide extraordinaire, Tony Berendsen, owner of Tahoe Star Tours and past president of the Northern Nevada Science Coalition, will lead you on an exploration of the skies.   He’ll provide an informative Star Tour Astronomy presentation, a laser tour of the stars and telescopic viewing through multiple state-of-the-art computerized Celestron telescopes. 


FAQs

 

What if there is weather the evening of the event?

We will try our hardest to make each Star Tour happen.  However if Mother Nature interferes we will contact guests via email and/or cell phone to notify them of the cancelation.  If an event is canceled, guests will be able to transfer to another tour night or receive a refund.  

 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Thursday and Saturday evenings guests can drive to the viewing site located at the Castle Peak Parking Lot #1, directly to the right of the roundabout on Northstar Drive. Please arrive between 8:15pm and 8:30pm to meet up with the other members of the tour. Star Guide Tony will be waiting to greet you and check your party in for the tour.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Please make sure to bring a jacket as it can get chilly during the Sierra nights and wear comfortable shoes since you will be walking on pavement for approximately 5-10 minutes.

Due to the group size please refrain from bringing your own telescopes. We'll have three telescopes for participants to use, including the Celestron Sky Prodigy 6 robotic telescope, and Ipad wireless telescope operation using the SkyQ to get a great view of the night sky!

 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to reach out to the Northstar Season Pass & Tickets Office with any questions prior to the tour by calling 1-800-GO-NORTH. 


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You don’t need to bring anything; Star Guide Tony will have a list of registered guests.

 

What is the refund policy?

All event sales are final; no refunds will be issued.
