A laser-guided tour of starry wonders with professional stargazer Gigi Giles will be offered from 8:30 to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 10, at Spooner Lake.

High powered telescopes and astronomical binoculars will be provided. Attendees are asked to wear comfortable shoes and bring a warm jacket. Red flashlights are recommended as they do not affect night vision. Children under 12 and pets are not recommended for this event.

Entry to Spooner Lake State Park, near the intersection of State Route 28 and Highway 50, is free for the event. To attend, meet at the upper parking lot.

The Nevada State Parks Passport Booklet is available at any state park. Visitors who have their booklets stamped at 15 different parks earn a free annual pass to all Nevada State parks. The booklet, which serves as a travel aid as well as travelogue for park visitors, includes photos, a description of each park, lists of amenities, travel journal pages and spaces for validation stamps which have been designed to reflect each unique state park.
