Did you know that the Luxor Sky Beam in Las Vegas is the strongest beam of light in the world?
It comes from within the glass covered pyramid shaped hotel and it goes up into the blue sky of the Las Vegas Strip. At night you can see the beautiful pyramid silhouette topped with the incredible light pointing up. In addition, the illuminated palm trees and the Spinx in front of it create an image you will remember for a long time.
People say that the Luxor Sky Beam can be seen from a distance of more than 200 miles (400 km). I don’t remember seeing it when we first flew into Las Vegas, but I was not aware of it either. However, if you take a helicopter tour at night you will certainly not miss it.
Don’t think that the beam comes from one oversized bulb, because it doesn’t. The engineers built this from 39 individual 7,000 watt bulbs. Whatever they did, they certainly created one of the main attractions in this city of lights. It is nevertheless a masterpiece of technology
The picture is available in my Las Vegas Attractions photo collection as art prints for various uses in various sizes and prices. If you want it as a souvenir, just click on the image to see all the options.
Here is an example of how the Luxor Sky Beam along with the pyramid and Sphinx can look like in your living-room:
– Again, one of those “Only in Las Vegas” things :)
