We booked this tour before we left the UK. We met Alex as planned but unfortunately it was cloudy. We waited a while and the clouds began to clear slightly so we drove out to the dark viewing area. Again it clouded over so unfortunately we didn't get to see any stars. However, Alex provided a very informative talk for... More

A different approach to a night sky program. Not just pointing out the standard constellations. Much more interesting. Makes you understand a little about your place in the Universe.

The clarity through the telescope is astounding. Alex spoke a discourse that invited interaction and really stretched one's mind. I peered into deep space and reflected on a subject little known to me. This surpassed my expectation. Chose this AMAZING opportunity for the astronomy. It is NOT about constellations. The experience is Much, Much more.

Alex was very knowledgeable and interesting host. The night skies around Moab are hard to beat. I found the evening to be fun, inspiring and educational. I would highly recommend Red Rock Astronomy.

Great opportunity to view the skies and the stars. Alex is very passionate about what he does, but the talk did get a bit too intense and over the top for our particular group's needs. We didn't get to learn about any constellations because he can't share his tribe's stories until the winter time-- that was needless to say a... More

We met up with Alex in a parking lot north of Moab. He told us the skies were not clear enough but may clear. We chatted in the parking lot for about 1/2 hour and decided the sky appeared to be clearing so we (our party and two others) decided to go and give it a try. The sky never... More

Alex met us in the parking lot the night we were to go viewing. He told us up front the sky was not optimal, but we could try it. Alex gave us the choice to go or not. We had to get up very early, so we decided to skip it, rather than wait for the sky to clear. This... More

The most fantastic sky ever. We saw stars we had never seen before. The talk was boring and the views through the telescope were so small and random you could not tell what you were seeing. Just go up to the mountain your self at night and save your money

Had a fantastic time with Alex. We were lucky enough to have a very clear night and saw an amazing sky and several impressive celestial features. Alex did a great job to ensure everyone was comfortable, and was able to answer questions and provide explanations in a way that was understandable for casual enthusiasts to total newcomers alike. Alex was... More

It's a fantastic thing to do. Gazing at the sky through the telescope and listening to the fascinating stories Alex has to tell in the middle of nowhere is quite magic. This is not about star signs but galaxies, time travel and stars - a very precious moment of our vacations! Thank you Alex
