Looking for an adventure this weekend?


The Alien Research Center is the perfect location to see the Comet NEOWISE. The comet will be visible to the naked eye through Saturday, after that you’ll need binoculars or a telescope until the end of July.


Have you ever seen the Big Dipper along with millions of stars? In the parking lot of the Alien Research Center all you have to do is look up and WOW! You’ll be hooked on Stargazing forever.


The best viewing?  Get away from the bright lights of Las Vegas and take the short drive to the Alien Research Center, the gateway to Area-51. Pack up the kids a night picnic basket and your camera and join us at one of the most beautiful places to Stargaze in the world. 


You’ll want to get out of the city around 10am, you’ll arrive at the Alien Research Center about noon, check out the store and the surrounding area, visit the back gate to Area 51 and then set the family up at our 2 ½ acre parking lot 30 minutes before sunset and then look to the northwestern horizon and as the sun sets, you’ll be able to see the tail of the comet coming over the horizon. The Comet NEOWISE should become visible with a clear view around 9:30 p.m.


This is a once in a lifetime event…Don’t miss it.
