We were so surpised how many stars were out in the clear skies in Sedona. Seriously, it was like being in a planetarium. We could see so many constellations. There were more stars than dark space!

I booked this tour at the last minute. Sounded like a great way to end my trip to Sedona and boy was it. It was a perfect night for star gazing and our astronomer Trevor was fantastic! She was so incredibly knowledgeable and showed us so many amazing things. Seeing Saturn through the telescope was truly awe inspiring. Highly recommended... More

It is hard to close your eyes to go to sleep because the stars are so spectacular. It is one of the top places in the world to see stars. Viewing them from the Enchantment Resort is a real treat.

This is an activity to let you truly get away from earth! Looking through a telescope and understand what you're seeing is really exceptional. The astronomers that explain what you are seeing are really experienced and knowledgeable. This was the best thing we did in the Sedona area.

If at all possible, plan this event when there is very little or no moonlight in the sky. Any white light detroys any chance of seeing the galactic cloud of the Milky Way and many of the starts that cannot be seen from other locales.

With the emphasis on a dark sky ordinance, you can see so many stars it is amazing. We love to go out at sunset and then stay as the sky darkens and the stars come out. Lovely place to be with your BF.

Found this by reading TA reviews and it did not disappoint. It was held on a school soccer field and our astronomer, Rick, was very knowledgeable and passionate about astronomy. We were able to see Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, a double star, a nebula, a globular cluster, and various constellations under Rick's guidance. We also saw five meteors streaking across the... More

I did a star gazing several years ago when in Sedona so I was excited to do this with my 12 and 14 year old nephews. outfit was well organized and they provided chairs and blankets to keep you warm which surprisingly we needed though the temp was high 80s. Equipment was disappointing. We viewed Saturn but the first time... More

Sedona, like Flagstaff, is a "low-light" enforced community, which means all lights must face down, so as not to light pollute the skies. Even on a "full moon night", which we had when we visited Sedona, I could see so, so many more stars than I can in Chicago!

Held at a school soccer field, this allowed for a vast area of wide open space in Sedona. It was led by a super knowledgeable astronomer - I cannot recall his name- but he exudes passion for astronomy. He took care to make sure that everyone could see the "cool" stuff really well. So fascinating. I was kept engaged the... More
