Redrock astronomy did a great job with the tour. Alex was a great guide, very informative and entertaining. We have done this twice now, I do like the location north of town better than the location south of town. There was less traffic going by at the north location.

My kids are learning about astronomy in school and I'm glad that Alex made time for us. His quality telescope was neat to use and the evening was informative.

Red Rock Astronomy did a program for our group event in Moab and it was really fun to look at the stars and learn about Astronomy. Thanks for the great program.

Seeing the dark skies of Utah is amazing..adding a little bit of information makes it super amazing...my biggest beef is that the location was just off a road with lots of cars and too much "viewing" of less interesting stuff...still it was fun

I was surprised by how indifferent Alex was to the common interest of his audience in identifying constellations or looking at familiar objects through a telescope. He said the differences in cultural names and origins prevented him from discussing constellations. Really? So share some cultural differences with us already. If you are truly interested in seeing nebula and distant galaxies,... More

I welcome when someone makes a comment such as this every few years as it give me an opportunity to explain what type of program I offer. My program is intended for all age groups as educational, but also designed to be entertaining as well. It is oriented towards folks that want to go past the everyday constellation type program...

Alex provides the chairs, blankets, and telescope....we just enjoyed a spectacular view of the skies and a knowledgable presentation by Alex. If clouds roll in, he is willing to adjust the charges or change your night. Very easy to work with!

We read the reviews of Alex and his outing. We decided to do this event and were thrilled with the experience. We have teen sons that love astronomy. They were so engaged with Alex and what he was able to show us with his telescope. I highly recommend this outing is you have anyone in your party that loves looking... More

It's very difficult to add anything to the five star reviews that have gone before. It was a wonderful evening that lasted three hours (30 minutes for meeting up and driving to the dark sky site, 2.5 hours presentation of the heavens). There were only four customers and we paid $40 each. Whilst setting up the telescope, Alex kept us... More

The night weather was perfect, an appreciated cooling from the July day heat. The moon wasn't set to rise for several hours, so the sky was getting darker by the minute. Alex was weaving his stories while the night's darkness and silence applied his voice. My entire family enjoyed the experience. I particularly remember Alex talking of Native Rock Art... More

You get to enjoy dark skies, tons of stars, a great telescope and Alex orchestrating a wonderful show. We saw Saturn and it's moons, Uranus, star clusters, the ring nebula and and even 2 colliding galaxies (which was the highlight for me)! Alex does a great job making sure that everyone in the group (10 people on our night) gets... More
