Star Gazing in Sedona was an item on my bucket list. The night sky is beautiful and it you can see it all from this dark sky site. Trevor was our guide. She knows everything about astronomy. Seriously. It was too cold for my tolerance, but I survived because Trevor so fabulously guided us through this fascinating tour of our... More

Sedona has the most amazing star gazing. You can see constellations, stars, galaxies. The experience is incredible, especially for those who live where lights are bright and overshadow the diamond studded sky!

Our family of five (2 adults + 3 kids--13, 11 and 8) enjoyed the star gazing. It was a cold night but we were provided with blankets and over-sized coats to use while we sat on chairs. It was so much fun and educational. We saw other galaxies and were taught to identify the stars that we wondered about when... More

We did the tour last night. First off: be prepared for COLD!!!! Even with the parkas and blankets they provide it is colder than you'd ever imagine. Fantastic education on constellations, galaxies & stars...the college student Wes that was our guide was incredible, like a walking encyclopedia. We got to see 6-8 things through the telescope. Plus, just sitting in... More

Sedona stargazing was an amazing experience. It was truly the highlight of my trip. All this on a cloudy evening! Dave sets the group up for a comfortable and illuminating experience. Even though it was cloudy he took the opportunity to identify some remarkable phenomena to share with us. I will never forget seeing a star nursery in the constellation... More

On a cold January night, we were welcomed to the star gazing area with comfortable camp chairs, warm blankets and oversize parkas to help us stay warm. The "light show" (i.e. the stars and planets themselves) can't be beat. And the close up views through the telescope were spectacular. How wonderful to have such a view of the night sky... More

I grew up around here and have been spoiled on how I grew up in and near two dark sky areas. In town, it is still easy to see the stars, but if you get outside of the main area the stars open up all around you. This location is definitely outside the main area and you get a good... More

One of the best experiences we have ever had. Our guide was a retired NASA astronomer who was friendly, educated, informative and answered all questions. Chairs and warm blankets were provided. We whole heartedly recommend it and would do it again the next time we visited Sedona

We are from nowheresville, WI, so we were happy to see the stars, but they honestly were no better than back home. If you first are in Phoenix, etc...then the stars are definitely a sight!
