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

Very informative, highly recommended for a nice couple hours under the stars. Definitely give it a go if you have an interest in astronomy, or just want something relaxing to do one night, you might actually learn something too!

We met him late at night when the skies were dark with no moon , he patiently explained to us about the various planets that we were viewing cosmic nebulae, stars the Milky Way and other fascinating views. He has a... More

We met Alex at the designated spot and waited for the sky to get really dark. All the stars came out and I honestly felt like we were in a planetarium. It was fabulous. Alex is the real deal. He has a wealth of knowledge and his telescope is state of the art. He brings chairs for everyone. Make sure... More
