Peter was super knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic! Would definitely do this again.very educational, I appreciated his emphasis on some female astronomers as well! Santa Fe is a good spot to view the night sky, even saw a shooting star for the first time, I was amazed by the telescope, I had no idea what to expect but it was massive. Went with a friend while we were visiting Santa Fe.

Peter possesses both a technical knowledge of astronomy and the ability to make it fun and interesting for all. The number of stars visible in the sky at the dark site away from light pollution was just incredible. Along with we adults who were humbled by all we learned of the enormity of the universe, we had two teens with us who remained engaged for over two hours on a chilly December night. Peter provided chairs and a warming hut. I requested suggestions so my teenager could learn more, and he graciously shared advice including astronomy books to read. I highly recommend this experience!

Seriously good experience with a superior individual. Peter blends science, history, anthropology and sociology into a blockbuster session that is punctuated by jaw dropping views. There are a lot of options in the northern rio grande valley- but I don’t think any of them quite match the shock and awe of Peter’s professional tour. If you like nature, the outdoors or story telling, don’t deprive yourself of this truly sublime experience. 10/10 (or as Peter might say, 11/10!!! Lol)

If you enjoy looking at the stars this is something you MUST do when in Santa Fe. Be certain to wear warm clothes as it does get cold in the evenings in Santa Fe, year round. The explanations & telescope he has are outstanding. Definitely worth the time & money.
