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. Face coverings are required to be worn at all times and social distancing practices will be observed.***

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!!

We recently did a night sky tour through Astronomy Adventures with our 9 year old, and it was truly incredible. Our kiddo was so impressed that we were able to view so many different types of stellar phenomena, and even different galaxies. She couldn't stop talking about it to whoever asked what her favorite part of the trip was. The range of topics covered, and the depth to which they were covered, was truly impressive. While it was cold, there was a place to warm up, and the cold was definitely worth it--you don't get sky clarity like that without a price! I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the Santa Fe area, for sure. I know it's on our repeat list!
