We took the astronomy tour with Alex, it was very good, right combination of interesting facts about the cosmos and looking at interesting objects through his telescope.
Would recommend this as something different to do in Moab.

We weren't sure what to expect, but were thrilled with the experience. Our guide gave us the history of Astronomy and explained how telescopes worked. We viewed many wonderful sights both with and without the telescopes. Alex was patient and made sure everyone participated.

We visited Moab for the first time this August and packed it full of adventure. Our kids are 14 and 11 and were old enough to do some of the really adventurous activities here. Their favorite may have been the relaxed evening spent with Alex at Red Rock Astronomy. We went to a bluff near Canyonlands. The sky was crystal clear. Alex showed us some wonderful sites within the sky: Ring Nebula, Andromeda galaxy, and the finale of Saturn with it's rings in clear view. Our boys came home asking to buy some more astronomy books. Great time. We hope to do this again on our next visit.

Our family thought this was an interesting diversion from the hiking and rafting we had been doing in Moab. At night near Canyonlands National Park it's quiet and dark. The night sky didn't cooperate too much the night we were there, but Alex still showed us some beautiful sights in the sky. Our teenagers got a bit antsy after a while so be prepared to spend a couple of hours up on the plateau looking at stars. We met the group in a parking lot at 8:30 pm and didn't get back to our hotel until 11:00 pm.

Alex set up the mini hubbel scope and educated us all about the night sky, adjusting our eyes to darkness, offered comfy chairs for leaning back and showed us galaxies, nebulas, planets, and moons. We loved the pace and quiet of the outing. Everyone had ample turns and time at the telescope and we were a party of 2 in a group of 10. This added a special moment to our trip for my star gazing partner. Also nice to have a cool evening time activity to pace yourself for while hiding out from mid summer daytime heat.
