We took the astronomy tour with Alex, it was very good, right combination of interesting facts about the cosmos and looking at interesting objects through his telescope. Would recommend this as something different to do in Moab.

We weren't sure what to expect, but were thrilled with the experience. Our guide gave us the history of Astronomy and explained how telescopes worked. We viewed many wonderful sights both with and without the telescopes. Alex was patient and made sure everyone participated.

We visited Moab for the first time this August and packed it full of adventure. Our kids are 14 and 11 and were old enough to do some of the really adventurous activities here. Their favorite may have been the relaxed evening spent with Alex at Red Rock Astronomy. We went to a bluff near Canyonlands. The sky was crystal... More

Our family thought this was an interesting diversion from the hiking and rafting we had been doing in Moab. At night near Canyonlands National Park it's quiet and dark. The night sky didn't cooperate too much the night we were there, but Alex still showed us some beautiful sights in the sky. Our teenagers got a bit antsy after a... More

Alex set up the mini hubbel scope and educated us all about the night sky, adjusting our eyes to darkness, offered comfy chairs for leaning back and showed us galaxies, nebulas, planets, and moons. We loved the pace and quiet of the outing. Everyone had ample turns and time at the telescope and we were a party of 2 in... More

Reserve your place now! If you live anywhere with light pollution, you need to do this. Alex makes the cosmos come alive through words and visuals. It's really a treat to do this. We loved it.

My girlfriend and I went on an astronomy tour with Alex back in June of this year. I figured we were in the middle of Moab why not go see the stars. Seeing the stars was spectacular and everything I hoped it would be. Alex's knowledge of astronomy is what made this even more fun. We were in a large... More

We enjoyed our night of stargazing. Just wished we had less car traffic that caused light pollution. We saw quite a lot of shooting stars that night. Eric was very knowledgeable about his subject.

I have my own 6" telescope and have spent a good amount of time looking at the sky, so I thought that this activity would be one for my children. Was I surprised. Alex not only presented very interesting objects to look at, (most of which I have not seen with mine down at sea level in an urban area),... More
