My girlfriends and I attended Astronomy Adventures the end of May. We were surprised at how much we could see through the telescope and how much we learned about the night sky. Peter was a wealth of knowledge. Enjoyed it very much and would recommend the adventure to any age from about 10 yrs old and up. Eileen Griffin

However, during a recent trip to Santa Fe, my family and I discovered that Santa Fe is awesome and wonderful place for an out of this world experience. We joined Peter for astronomy adventures and found an passionate and knowledgeable individual who provided us with a... More

My 13 year old son and I took a tour with Peter and loved it. I particularly greatly enjoyed Peter's wealth of cultural astronomy information. Both my son and I highly recommend this for people of any age.

I always wanted to see Saturn & its rings. The silver white ball with its ring/s was amazing & will forever stay with me! Awesome experience! Family friendly. Layman's terms. A globular cluster, a planetary nebular. Touch a meteorite! We were amazed from start to finish! Do not miss out! Its worth every penny!

We've experienced lots and lots of different types of adventures while traveling. I have to say that this one is now at the top of the list. Mainly because Peter is so passionate about what he does. He reminded me of a cross between DeGrassie and Steve Irwin (Crocodile Hunter). We could have spent all night listening to him and... More

We were a group of 3 adults of varying scientific interest and experiences (Total group for the evening was about 12). Peter did an excellent job of making the evening understandable and interesting to all of us. We went in late May, and we had a few clouds get in the way, but not enough to cause any real problems.... More

Peter, the owner, takes you on a tour of the universe only 40 minutes from Santa Fe. He's super-friendly, with excellent equipment and a vast knowledge of the sky. Make sure you bring warm clothing. Even though it was a warm day in Santa Fe, it got cold very quickly in the desert. A warming hut is available, but you... More

I wanted to do something special for my husband on our recent trip to Santa Fe. He loves astronomy and this was the perfect gift for him. Peter, the owner and astronomer extraordinaire, was simply amazing. He was very knowledgable, funny, personable and has a great memory--he called each of the 9 participants by name all evening. The adventure lasted... More

What an amazing experience. Peter is an award winning astrophotographer, with a vast knowledge of the cosmos and its history with mankind, both in myth and fact. While there, we saw the International Space station, along with 3 satellites (thanks to Peter, I now know how to tell the difference between a satellite and a plane in the sky), 2... More

This was simply amazing and a must to do on a trip to Santa Fe. Peter was fun and spent a great amount of time showing us stars and doing a lot of explanations of what we were looking at. We went in April so it was cold at night. Bring extra clothes for layering but he does have a... More
