Participated 8/23/14. After two reschedules due to weather, we had an enjoyable evening with Rick as our guide. The tour consists of chances to view the heavens through telescope and naked eye (supplemented by a laser pointer to guide your eye). They provide chairs and blankets. All in all, a fascinating evening.

Rick Schafer was our knowledgeable and passionate astronomer and he taught us a lot about the universe and we saw very neat things through the telescope. They had chairs and blankets for us and it was a great experience to be seeing a 360-degree view of the sky in the peace and quiet.

Sedona Star Gazing is a great experience for all ages. There were no children the evening we were there 2 years ago but kids would love it. The guides are very knowledgeable on astronomy and were able to explain various phenomena so that every one there could benefit from their knowledge. This is a great area to see stars, planets,...

Sedona has some of the best stargazing around. Fortunately, for us, we can sit in our backyard and watch meteors crisscross the heavens.

Get away from the lights, like horse-shoe trail, bring a blanket, a pillow and bottle of wine. AMAZING!!!!

The experienced guide/astronomer meets you in a place with a dark sky to see the night sky from horizon to horizon. They bring telescopes and green lasers to give you an experience you will never have anywhere else. I recommend this trip for all ages.

My 9 year old son and I spent an evening stargazing and it was magical. Turning up in the dark sky car park only adds to the excitement - following the team to the field where chairs and blankets and parkas awaited. The talk was fascinating and the use of the telescopes was a great experience. Arizona is gorgeous -... More

Clear skies, a full moon, and beautiful stars. Sighting the ISS was an added bonus the week we spent in Sedona.

A father son team that know their stuff. We learned more about the sky in 90 minutes than I had ever retained in my 40 plus years. They showed us the moon and Saturn through the telescopes as well as star clusters, nebulas and other planets. As we sat there being shown all the constellations in the night sky, we... More
