About Astronomy Adventures
Here in New Mexico, we still have skies that are clear and dark enough to explore the many fascinating jewels of the night. Our safe and secure observing site is an easy drive out of Santa Fe. Come spend an evening getting acquainted with some of nature’s most distant and beautiful creations. A giant telescope and our expert guide will spark your sense of wonder with close-up views of planets, nebulae, star clusters and distant galaxies. ***Please note: During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, Astronomy Adventures will follow COVID-safe guidelines as mandated by the Governor of the State of New Mexico, the New Mexico Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control.

My experience at Astronomy Adventures could not have been better. My 3 children and I were mesmerized by the exquisite beauty in the sky above us! Peter works hard to make the night special from start to finish and his knowledge and enthusiasm for the cosmos is very apparent. What a unique and special way to commemorate an anniversary, birthday, graduation or other celebration. Even my teenagers loved it. I highly recommend it!

Peter’s broad yet accessible program was a tour of astronomy through the ages, combined with unbelievable view-finding, illustrating key concepts via dazzling visuals. Thought-provoking presentation put me in my place - which is NOT as it turns out - the center of the universe.

Worth the drive. Spectacular views. Not only did you see the views of the sky, you learned the history of how we understand the sky today. Definitely recommend!

The night with Astronomy Adventures was informative, entertaining, and mind-blowing. Looking at the beautiful New Mexico sky through a 20 inch telescope is simply breathtaking. We would recommend Astronomy Adventures for anyone with even the slightest interest in knowing more about the universe we live in. Peter, our host astronomer, was incredibly knowledgeable. This Is my first review on TripAdvisor but honestly, Astronomy Adventures was absolutely worth it. Do it!

Peter was so engaging and informative about the night sky. The view was incredible and the sky beautiful. Peter anticipated our comfort needs by setting up reclining chairs and heating up the warming shed. The telescope was amazing too, but the hidden gem in this adventure is Peter and his vast knowledge of history and astronomy! We had a blast and would definitely recommend this astronomy adventure for any star gazers!!
