Experience Northstar

Tahoe Star Tours at Northstar's Cosmoarium

June 22, 2017

We invite you to think big, REALLY big, and look up to the stars above Northstar California every Thursday and Saturday evening throughout the summer. Join us at the Northstar Dark Skies Cosmoarium with star guide and poet Tony Berendsen for an intimate look at the Sierra stars. Bring childlike curiosity and wonderment to view the cosmos through high-powered Celestron telescopes. 

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

Directions: Turn right at the round-about on Northstar Drive and arrive at the Northstar Dark Skies Cosmoarium.
