Offered most nights at 8 pm, this interactive star gazing session includes an educational talk and exploration of the night sky by use of impressively high powered telescopes. Kids are included (and encouraged to ask questions) by expert Tony, and everyone in our group, from age 7 to 37, were entertained. We learned about super novas and constellations and viewed Saturn and Mars from the telescopes. The Tahoe night sky was amazing…the stars literally pop here. Bring a sweater for everyone, as it gets chilly in the mountains once the sun goes down.

Tip: The 10:30 shuttle does take some time to weave its way back down the mountain and drop off all passengers: we didn't get back to our Northstar vacation rental until almost 11:30 pm. If you have young children who don't want to be out that late, it's also possible to leave the program at 10:15 pm, walk back up the hill to the Highlands Gondola, and take it back down before it shuts down at 10:30. (To make use of this option, however, you need your own transportation in the Village.)
