Viewing the night sky here is fantastic, and we try hard to keep it that way!

Sedona has adopted "Dark Sky" rules & guidelines that Sedona residents, businesses & road lights have to follow in order to make star gazing optimum. Flagstaff was the first to try this, and we followed suit. Due to the elevation & these practices, the skies are brilliant with sparklies, and another great reason to visit Sedona. So, even though most... More

It almost looks fake or as if you are not on earth. The sky is magical at night. A little creepy for me but my teens loved it. They downloaded an app that let them identify the stars as they pointed their phones up to the sky. That was really cool!!! This should not be missed!

Very enjoyable. Wes was able to answer everyone's questions. He was patient and waited for some clouds to clear. He was able to point to items of interest with his laser pointer and found objects easily with his 12.5 inch telescope.

One of the best drives in the state. You can't go wrong in Sedona. The views day and night are one of a kind. Millions of stars at night glow and cast an illumination on the red rocks. Trek up Schnebley Hill and gaze. Wow

I was looking forward to stargazing but I didn't really enjoy the session. I was surprised how many people turned up - we were split into groups of 12 and walked out into a field where we met our astronomer. He knew his stuff, but I found it all a bit boring as we all had to go up to... More

I will do this again when I go in November because there are different things to see depending on the time of year what planets are visable

Great introduction to star gazing. Wess was very knowledgeable . Our night started very cloudy but the clouds disappear . While we were waiting he taught us about the cosmos as we waited for the night to clear. We even got to see Saturn. Lots of shooting stars. A must do in the Sedona area due to no light pollution....

What a waste of time and money. Hard to find. If it's cloudy you're not going to see anything. Was supposed to be 2 hours. Only spent 1 1/2 hrs there. Would never do again

We did this on our last night. It was clear and there were stars to see everywhere. I never saw so many. We viewed saturn and Andromeda. Our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting and kept our interest. We viewed through a telescope and it was awesome. This is a must to do.
