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

We had no idea that the evening we spent with Alex would open the skies and be an inspiration for our granddaughter. She studied the planets and stars in 4th grade but it was nothing like the evening viewing the stars, nebula, planets, and moon with Alex. We all learned a great deal, but now she is truly inspired by... More

We were on a family trip to Utah. Both my kids, particularly my 8 year old son, are fascinated by space and the universe and we thought that this would be something fun and different for them. We were right. We met Alex and caravanned out to the viewing site - outside Moab at a pull-off with parking and bathrooms... More

Alex was SO knowledgeable. Had some awesome equipment too! Alex had blankets and chairs already. All you need for this adventure is a curious mind..... he'll take care of everything else

Alex with his 8 inch Celestron was super. Listened to him discuss astronomy as the sun went down, and then spent two full hours gazing at the dark Utah skies. There were only about 10 of us, so didn't wait long to look through the telescope. But my favorite time was gazing at the stars and watching several satellites and... More

Alex (our guide at RedRock Astronomy) gave a wonderful presentation of the night sky. He showed us stars, nebulae, planets, and even the moons orbiting around Jupiter. I would highly recommend this tour if you are interested in the night sky.

Clouds & rain delayed our tour, but on the fourth night Alex was able to fit us in for an extremely clear night. The tour caravan followed him to the viewing area, approximately 20 miles out of Moab, which was far enough to get away from the city lights. The night sky in southern Utah was spectacular. Alex was very... More

While visiting Moab, UT, we wanted to take full advantage of the area's "big sky" - something that you don't see in the big cities. As such, I arranged a night of stargazing with RedRock Astronomy. Alex was wonderful. He was very communicative and thorough in his email exchanges with us, making sure we knew what to expect, how to... More
