If you like to see what's 'our there', this is for you. It was fabulous to be able to look through the telescope and see stars, and planets, and a great view of the moon!!!!

My husband and I participated in the Lemmon SkyCenter Valentines Event. Travis and Tracy were our hosts. Their genuine warmth, vast knowledge, and enthusiasm were infectious. The event was very hands on. We found this to be a real authentic experience with an opportunity learn. The whole evening is thoughtfully laid out with plenty of opportunities to warm up if need be. If it is a cold evening - read the emails. One great suggestion: If you are traveling and you came to Arizona for the desert heat and didn't bring warm clothing - go to a Goodwill. It is freezing up on the mountain!

Truly a great experience. Hosted by some some very enthusiatic and bright young astronomers who enjoy sharing their passion for "whats out there'. Very informative and engaging. Lots of 'scope time' to see various 'objects'. A neat sunset talk and constellation overview. Just overall fantastic. Met some interesting people also taking the tour, mostly smart types, grad students, professionals, curious intellectual types. Made for interesting conversation. Not your average tourists lets say! Very pleasant and enjoyable experience!
