A sizzling alpenglow sunset sets the stage followed by a pitch black sky that illuminates the stars and planets.  It’s the perfect venue for a tribute to Carl Sagan.

Join star guide and poet Tony Berendsen of Tahoe Star Tours, as he honors Dr. Sagan during a fascinating night of science, poetry, and star gazing at Northstar on September 1, 2 and 3, 2016.

Following a summer of star tours, the final tour is a tribute to astronomer and author Carl Sagan, the leading modern pioneer who opened our eyes and minds up to astronomy, astrophysics and other natural sciences, as well as our curiosity about extra terrestrials, Venus, Saturn and Mars.  The tribute will include a poem reading by Tony, a laser tour of the stars and constellations, discussion of Sagan’s theories and advances of astronomy, a telescopic viewing, and music by the string quartet, Accent Nevada. So bring a child’s curiosity and plenty of questions for an evening of wonder and awe.  Coffee, hot chocolate and dessert will also be served.
