Our astronomer, Dave, was very knowledgeable and balanced the time well between looking at stars through the telescope and explaining constellations and astronomical events while looking at the night sky unaided. Several meteors were also a highlight of the night. I initially had to drag my husband along, but he was really impressed and absolutely enjoyed himself. It was a... More

I've always loved astronomy and thought this would be a perfect excursion for me and my mother. It was cold, so I wish I had brought a thermos of something warm to drink, but the chairs and blankets were toasty. If anything, I wish there had been an "advanced" group that we could have participated in. Some of our other... More

We had a wonderful experience tonight. Completely clear sky with no moon. We didn't get to see any planets due to the time of year, but we got to learn a lot about different stars and constellations. We were also fortunate to be here during the tail end of a meteor shower, so let's just say I got to make... More

The city lights are dimmed at night so one can have a wonderful look at the starry skies. I was surprised that the weather was so mild in December.

This was phenomenal! We learned a lot and the guy teaching us was funny and knowledgeable. What wasn't great is the fact that there was only 1 telescope and of the 1.5 hour event I feel like 70 % was spent standing in line for the telescope. You didn't want to look for long since everyone is waiting. This would... More

This was my first look ever though a telescope, my husband & I loved the entire night. Our guide, Rick, is a teacher and you can tell his love of astronomy. I learned more about the galaxy this night then all my years prior. The tour starts with everyone sitting in a chair, and Rick has this epic laser pointer... More

When I made this reservation I was told that they would not have the tour if it was cloudy - Well it WAS cloudy - not a full cloud cover but enough to make it hard to see some of the constellations. The guides did more talking than showing - it was very cold - parka's and blankets were provided.... More

Just a breathtaking and humbling vision ... there's nothing quite like the night skies of Sedona! We enjoyed our stargazing at the Hotel Amara ... the solitude and view was amazing. Don't miss it!

The guides were knowledgeable and very helpful. Blankets and parkas were provided, but we were still cold in the 40 something temps. Dress warmly. The view is amazing,
