Awesome experience

Loved seeing Jupiter, Orion Nebula and galaxies! Highly recommend this activity. The astronomer did a wonderful job explaining the constellations as well.

We had a great time! Weston was our host & he did a great job. The Sedona sky was very cooperative and Weston was very informative. Dress warm, they do supply chairs & blankets along with a great telescope.

More stars that you can imagine when star gazing in the Sedona area. It is so dark that so many more stars are visible. Good idea to lay on a blanket to take it all in, though....you can get a crick in your neck from looking heavenward for too long!

Would definitely do this again. Our "guide" was so knowledgeable, we learned a lot. Definitely dress warmer than you think you need too. You will not be dissapointed

We booked Sedona Star Gazing after visiting the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff days earlier. The dark night skies of Northern AZ are a conducive backdrop for any level of astronomy. Our guide, Rick, was a good speaker and beyond knowledgeable. Sedona Star Gazing provides chairs and blankets and Rick had the telescope set up and pointed when we arrived. Our... More

For city slickers, being able to see a sky full of stars is onto itself an amazing experience. But our guide was too technical, assuming we knew all about different galaxies and star systems. Given that there were kids of different ages in our group (and people with varying degrees of galactic knowledge) it would have made more sense to... More

The star gazing experience was a truly unique evening! For about 90 minutes we sat under the dark sky in an open field and saw a tremendous amount of stars and learned quite a bit about the night sky. Our guide WESTIN was awesome!! He was very knowledgeable and made the evening enjoyable! Even my 12 year old daughter who... More

My family had a wonderful time star gazing in Sedona. We had two guides and each guide had a telescope. They were very organized. First, they would teach us and then we would look at an example of what we had just learned. They provided blankets and chairs which was very helpful. The whole event lasted a little more than...

Our guide Nigel was just awesome! The moon was full, which limited our viewing. But Nigel kept things interesting and imparted a lot of knowledge, and was open to every question. I will never look at the sky again without remembering our visit here. Thanks Nigel. You gave us a gift we will always remember.

. . . This is the attraction for you. I am very interested in stars, planets, constellations, the galaxy, and the universe. There is a great deal of instruction involved in this activity, so if you are not interested in learning more about all of the above this is probably not for you. And while they certainly don't have the... More
