what an incredible tour. We absolutely loved seeing all of the amazing constellations and nebulas through our telescope and all of the information regarding the night sky was at the level of an astronomer. Wes was wonderful and so knowledgeable-would definitely do it again!

Thank you for the terrific review of our stargazing experience. We do hope you visit us again at a different time of year and we will show you a completely different sky. May and June are time for planets and warm evening.

I felt the price ($60) was too high given the moon was almost full and lit up the night sky. This kept a lot of things off limits and we simply looked at the moon and some brighter stars. Perhaps they shouldn't go out in...More

We appreciate your positive review of our experience. We keep our ratio of guests to astronomers at max of 12:1 so we always have a small group experience which allows for considerable interaction with our astronomers. Many times our groups are 10 or less.
