This was like going to a planetarium to see a show, but it is outside and you are really there. We had a beautiful, though cold night. After meeting us at the parking area, we walked to the middle of the soccer chair where captain's chairs were set up, each with a blanket. They let us know that they had parka's if we got too cold, and I did end up using one. They were very prepared for anything. The guide was very knowledgeable, and as he talked about the stars and constellations he would use a very powerful laser pointer to show us exactly what he was talking about. After a good 30 to 40 minute talk, we all had opportunities and ample time to look through two telescopes at different astronomical wonders. After we all had a chance to look through each telescope at a different wonder, we would sit again as the guide explained what we would be seeing next. I've never seen binary stars, the Andromeda galaxy, etc., etc.
I was very impressed with their knowledge, how they conducted the evening, and how they thought of everything that would keep all of us comfortable. This was an experience I never had before, and might be the kind of experience that you could only have in a place like Sedona, one of the darkest places in the U.S.
