The MSG Sphere Eyeball Is Freaking People Out In Las Vegas
Las Vegas’s newest attraction might be more of an unwanted distraction.
The MSG Sphere has been under construction for five years. It broke ground September of 2018. Since then, residents of Las Vegas have highly anticipated the giant dome’s completion. And as we sit just seven weeks away from its grand opening, people are starting to wonder if it might cause more trouble than its worth.
As reported by Larry Martino last month, since the MSG Sphere first started displaying images on its outer screens, its caused some issues. Mostly with traffic as people stop to take pictures and videos of the massive projector. But that doesn’t seem to be the extent of the problems people are having.
At about 376 feet tall and 516 feet across, the MSG Sphere is the world’s largest spherical structure. So you can’t just ignore it when its exterior lights up. Especially when you are in the immediate vicinity of it. With 1.2 million LED screens on the exterior, it can easily be seen from anywhere in the Las Vegas valley.

But its those who are the closest to it that are having issue with the massive structure. Beyond travelers blocking traffic to film the Sphere’s displays, golfers are also experiencing the downside to this amazing building. Especially when a giant eyeball is staring at them while they’re trying to tee off.
The MSG Sphere overlooks Las Vegas’ Wynn Golf Club. Where golfers from around the world come to play. It is considered one of the most prestigious public golf courses in the country. But the Wynn might end up seeing fewer players if they don’t curb the distraction coming from the Sphere.
Check out what sports personality Joe Pompliano posted on his Twitter page about golfing with a giant human eyeball staring at you.

And now you must stare at a 366-foot tall and 516-foot wide fake eyeball while you play.

In addition to the human eye, the Sphere has also displayed impressive images of the earth, a basketball, jack-o-lantern and more. The MSG Sphere is set to open on September 29, 2023. We’ll just have to see then if the inside is as impressive as the outside.
