Sunset Stars and Champagne Train
May 22 @ 7:30 pm
For those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to live up here in the Rural Inter-Mountain West, you are missing our breathtakingly beautiful sunsets and night skies. For those of you who live in these parts, you may not have taken the time lately to stop and gaze at the Heavens. Either way, plan a special evening out admiring the sunset as it sinks over the Steptoe Valley, and witness the stars of ours. This area has one of the darkest skies in the lower 48 states which provides the setting for our wonderful night skies.
Experience a marvelous western sunset and watch the stars come out, while enjoying a relaxing train ride in Nevada’s high desert country. The train takes you out into the desert, above Steptoe Valley, giving you a wonderful panoramic view of the sunset. On the return trip, enjoy looking up at the stars, as they come out in the heavens above. Weather permitting, you should be able to clearly see the heavens with your naked eye. Bring your smartphone to help orient you to the night sky.
During the trip, enjoy a sparkly glass of champagne, included with your ticket fare. Please note, we do not bring telescopes on this train. This is a celestial tour of the constellations while enjoying the night skys.
