Dark sky community, clear air

Sedona is a great place for stars. I got photos I loved from the garden of my B&B. Go early to a trailhead to shoot with monuments.

One on the most spectacular evenings imaginable, gazing through a telescope at a carefully chosen series of nebula, constellations, stars, planets and galaxies, with the nearly full moon providing a showy final curtain. It makes all the difference to have a guide as quietly knowledgeable and fluent as David, who introduced and explained the wonders in an orderly way that... More

Tried to take this in while staying in Sedona for a few days. The attendees meet at the Verde Valley School at the end of the Verde Valley School Road out of Oak Creek Village. Tour is run by father and son who really know their stuff. They had 12 and 10 inch telescopes for viewing star features. Our group... More

MUST see! Especially watching the moon rise! If you are lucky enough to be there during a full moon, you will get to witness a spectacular sight.

Unfortunately the night we booked our tour there was an incredible rare very cloudy sky -caused by the El Niño in Mexico- that being said this company couldn't have handled it any better. In attempts to still complete the star gazing they showed us everything they could, and spent a great amount of time answering question and providing the fullest... More

Thank you for recognizing our company's efforts to provide exceptional customer service. When I started the company 12 years ago I had certain fundamental principles. One of the top was that if we did not produce an exceptional experience for our guests we would refund everyone's payment. Sometimes Mother Nature does not allow us to perform our magic. Weather forecasting... More

I wasn't expecting much as I was in town while the moon was full. I was wrong - the stories from the guide were as interesting as the night sky. He provided everything from a bit of history to the mythology. Thoroughly enjoyed it !

Was so impressed with this informative, well-organized, and actually moving experience. Wes, our guide, was interesting and knowledgeable, making the information accessible but also capturing the wonder of what we were seeing. Great job lining up the telescope, and appreciated the thoughtful provision of chairs, blankets, and red lighting. A real highlight of the trip.

We did not go to anyplace special to check out the night sky. One night we happened to be at a restaurant in an area with very little artificial light. We could clearly see a night sky full of stars, the Milky Way and even caught a shooting star!

My wife and I booked an evening viewing and were assigned to Rick Schneider. Rick is a retired professional astronomer and brings a lot of knowledge and experience to his talk! Although the moon was a bit bright, there were many things to see, including a double star! It got a bit cool, but blankets were provided and we were... More
