The celebrities on the Las Vegas Strip are not the only stars that tourists should look out for. Giving visitors a closer look at outer space including the moon, stars and planets, the Planetarium of Community College of Southern Nevada is one attraction that is suitable for all ages. The Planetarium features four high definition giant domed screens, and a high-tech video projection system to display clear video presentations about outer space and related phenomena. As the only interplanetary observatory in Nevada open to the public, it is the perfect family entertainment destination.
- Watch one of the special movie programs offered in the Planetarium, to experience full dome virtual reality displays, and learn more about astronomical cycles and events, and their effects on various civilizations' history and culture.
- Visit the student observatory and grab the opportunity to look through its powerful telescopes and get closer views of the constellations visible in the vast Las Vegas sky.
- Drop by the only Astronomy Store in Las Vegas, and be treated to a wide selection of planetary books, science toys, rocket models, posters, souvenirs and other astronomical items.
The Planetarium is specifically located within the Cheyenne Campus of the Community College of Southern Nevada, which is on East Cheyenne Avenue, North Las Vegas. The avenue can be found one mile east of the I-15 highway. Visitors to the Planetarium can hire a metered taxi service, which is available all over the Nevada region. Alternatively, the RTC (Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada) also operates three bus rapid transit routes that stop near the Cheyenne Campus. These three regular routes include Eastern (110), Pecos / Green Valley Pkwy (111), and Cheyenne (218).
