One thing you notice in Sedona is the lack of lighting at the resorts, but there is a reason why....so you can see the thousands of stars in the sky that you never ever see in the city. You can only see stars in the open country. Just spectacular, Another reason to visit and stay in Sedona AZ!!

A group of 9 of us went on a cool night in November. Gear up because it can be chilly but our hosts were prepared with chairs, blankets, and an extra jacket for each one of us - very thoughtful! Weston, our guide, put up with the 9 of us (pity the other couple that was included with our group)... More

We so enjoyed the Star Gazing in Sedona. The gazing is led by professionals and point our all that they can for the time of year that you are there. It was cold, so be sure to wear plenty of clothing.

I find myself staring at the sky often, wondering what is up there. I live in New Jersey and outside of the city lights, I'm occasionally able to see what looks like it could be a star. lol The Sedona Star Gazing Trip was a chance to see more than I normally see, but more importantly learn about what I...

Our guide Trevore did an amazing job of sharing her star passion. Very knowledgeable and passionate. My husband gave it a 5 but I'm giving it a four for 2 reasons. I never got into mythology and astronomy in my school years, so I was a bit lost as she was pointing out the constellations and IT WAS VERY COLD!!!!... More

Nothing like a clear night and "night sky" app on the phone to identify stars and constellations that you've never ever come close to seeing before. A must do!

Once you are outside of the village, the sky opens up and the stars are more vivid than in most areas of the USA. Simple binoculars are a plus and most visitors seem prepared with them.

I've never taken any kind of stargazing class and I thought it would be an interesting way to spend an evening. I was in a group of around 20 people and they all seemed to love it, as do most tripadvisor reviewers apparently. However, I found myself struggling to stay engaged, growing sleepy and didn't understand the point of learning... More

Gazillions of stars. This was an extraordinary experience. The professor showed us a satellite orbiting the earth. We saw Mars and the rings of Saturn through a powerful telescope. We also saw a star that exploded over 1000 years ago (how cool is that!). He also showed us the zodiacs and constellations. An unbelievable evening, one that I will remember... More
