We cannot say enough about what a special part of our trip this experience was with "Alex". We almost did not go because my husband has a balance problem that is worse in the dark. He found it too difficult to get up from his chair to look through the telescope. However, he was very content with the presentation and... More

Our night with Alex and RedRock Astronomy was an incredible experience. We have gone out for "astronomy nights" in Park City, UT and South Africa and this was by far the most informative! Alex has a wonderful program that is worth every penny, plus some! His telescope is pretty spectacular, too! Hurry and book now ....

Alex accommodated us on our anniversary trip to Moab September of 2016. What an experience! He met us at a park in Moab, and after quick introductions, we were off to Dead Horse Point State Park. Alex patiently took time to explain his method to us as we set up our viewing location. Throughout the night, he thoroughly explained each... More

Alex did a great job. He explained everything we were looking at through his telescope. We saw the moon, Saturn (rings and all) and numerous other night time sites. So glad the moon was in the right position and we were able to take advantage of this while in Moab.

If you are looking for something a bit different to do in Utah, experience Red Rock Astronomy star gazing. Alex your guide is knowledgeable and informative. His impressive telescope allows viewing of galaxies and planets usually unseen, especially for myself coming from the NYC area. Brush up on your astronomy, you will be tested LOL!

Alex was very helpful. His powerful telescope allowed our group to see things that we have only read about or seen in books. Our group was too large however which meant that each persons viewing had to be limited due to the late hour. Even though Alex has some thoughts about the cultural aspects of the constellations most of his... More

If you're looking for someone to show you constellations, this isn't it. Alex takes you to the top of Lone Mesa, sets up a huge telescope and tells you about the cosmos. We saw planets, far away galaxies, and stars being born. The time flew, even though the program was 2 1/2 hours long. Well worth the time and money... More
