On September 30th the Las Vegas Astronomical Society will hold their 19th Annual Cathedral Gorge Star Party. With good weather and a new moon this one should be as fun and educational as the one we visited two years ago.
On the First Friday web site they say 'There's no better way to celebrate a three-day weekend than beginning it with First Friday'. Join David Bert for a trip to downtown Las Vegas for a monthly event you'll enjoy.
In Overton, David Bert visits a museum dedicated to preserving the artifacts of the Anasazi Indians who lived in Nevada over a thousand years ago. The Lost City Museum was built by the National Park Service to exhibit artifacts that were being excavated from Pueblo Grande de Nevada.
Built in 1871, the 'Million Dollar Courthouse' is an interesting step back in time. Originally the Lincoln County Courthouse was to cost $26,400, but by the time the corrupt politicians were done it cost nearly $1,000,000.
David Bert visits Keepers of the Wild animal sanctuary, located at Mile Marker 27 on North Highway 93, which is 27 miles south of Hoover Dam, on the Arizona side.
