I took my nephew to Utah to explore the canyon country of southern and eastern Utah and we were not disappointed. One of the highlights was certainly our few hours spent with Alex. In addition to being very knowledgeable about the night sky, he was kind, funny and helpful. His telescope was top notch and he was patient with some... More

We booked this tour based on trip advisor, and the reviews were right on the money! We had a great time out in the desert with Alex, listening to him talk about the stars! This is not your average star talk - you won't hear the bottled stories of the constellations on this tour. You are getting pictures of the... More

Three generations of our family, ages 4 to retirement, went out with Alex last week to view the stars. We all live in Grand or San Juan County, so are not new to the stunning night sky. Alex's presentation is phenomenal! He chats as he sets up his equipment, engaging all of us (additional 5 from another group) in learning... More

We followed Alex to a star-gazing area near Canyonlands where, using a digital reflector telescope, he showed us planets, galaxies and stars. We time-traveled millions of years and saw the Milky Way with our naked eyes. It was a beautiful clear night and our guide did a great job of weaving an educational session with the beauty and wonder of... More

My family and I signed up for a night of stargazing with Alex. 3 smaller kids between 8 and 13 along with my wife and I. The sky was partly cloudy and Alex was unsure if the clouds would break allowing us to watch the heavens that night. He quickly offered that if we cannot see anything, he would not... More

When I asked around about stargazing in Moab, a couple of locals recommended, "just look up!" While that's one way, I have to say that I highly recommend calling Alex at Red Rock Astronomy. He created a wonderful evening in Dead Horse Point State Park, that was exquisitely beautiful, quiet, and STARRY!!!! Besides bringing a powerful telescope, blankets, and chairs,... More

As a passionate musician, I am instantly enthralled by the clear passion of others, whatever the subject or field may be. I was fortunate to be the recipient of the gift of an evening with Alex, and therefore, of his great passion for the stars and moons... I love how Alex strove to make everyone comfortable (despite the cold!) with... More

Alex was very knowledgeable and had a great approach to explaining the universe and the objects in the sky to non-science people. Even though it was just my mom and I for the night we went, he took the time to find the clearest spot that night in Moab and gave us a long lasting experience exploring the dark skies!... More

Alex is a fun guy and he is full of tidbits for the kids or for those who know nothing about astronomy. Looking at the moon was great; the other stuff -- star clusters and whatnot -- was less interesting. The evening moves at a snail's pace when there are too many people. Every time Alex repositioned the telescope, It... More

Thanks so much for your review and for coming out to the program! It sounds as though you didn't enjoy yourself and for that I am truly sorry. I run a program that is usually very active but does depend on the questions, ideas, comments and the interaction between myself and my guests. I do have quite a few amateur... More

Alex was a great character and did a nice job leading us around to some great sites. We saw the things we wanted to see very efficiently. The astronomy trip up onto the top of the buttes on the way out to Dead Horse Point was good for us. He has nice equipment and told good stories. Even though our... More
