My wife and I drove just south of Sedona's main shopping area and took one of the local back roads to get clear of the lights from the town. Even though the sky was very clear in town - the sky free of light pollution was spectacular!! The arm of the milkyway could be seen easily! If you visit Sedona... More

I found out about this through Trip Advisor and from reading other reviews. We were already experienced with astronomy and own our own telescope. We do live in an area with too much light pollution. As soon as we got out of the car we looked up and had never seen the Milky Way look so amazing. It was a... More

Attended the stargazing tour on a beautiful, clear night. I really enjoyed the lesson and the guides. Both were very enthusiastic about astronomy. I've always wanted to see Saturn's rings, and now I have! A nice relaxing time.

The skies are alive with stars at night. Saw a few shooting as well. Never thought the universe was so huge.

If you are an amateur stargazer, you will not regret this! Granted, for more experienced people, the astronomy lecture will definitely be a bit boring, as you probably won't learn much new information. However, if you are just starting out, this is perfect. The sky in Sedona is amazing (we lucked out with the moon phase). You do share a... More

I just returned from a star gazing tour in Sedona, AZ and had a wonderful experience. The trip was very well organized and the guides were generous and patient with their teachings; the sky was so full of stars it was unbelievable!

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.
