Luxor Hotel Casino



From my most recent trip to Las Vegas. This is the Luxor. At 42.3 billion candlepower, the Luxor Sky Beam is the strongest beam of light in the world. Using computer designed, curved mirrors to collect the light from 39 Xenon lamps and focus them into one intense, narrow beam, engineers say that an astronaut could read a newspaper by Luxor’s Sky Beam from ten miles into space. On a clear night, the Sky Beam is visible up to 250 miles away to an airplane at cruising altitude, and is clearly visible from outer space.

Nice image Amanda! My dad is a pilot in the 757's and 767's and absolutely hates flying over the Las Vegas area. There is actually a major lawsuit going on against the Luxor and many of the other hotel/casinos there because their lights are temporarily blinding the pilots silly enough to look down into them Nah!


btw Did you see the Blue Man Group inside the pyramid there?
