I thought this would be a bit hokey, but it ended up to be a good tour. When the car lights were turned off the sky exploded with stars and streaking meteors. I really enjoyed the trip.

We had a ball and almost comical at how much information that our astronomer had about the stars. It was a beautiful tour and fun! Try it!

Our stargazing experience was out of this world! We saw lots of shooting stars and some rather unexplained green lights that seemed to hover above the Red Rock formations. Truly an unforgettable experience!

Skies are very nice in October. Avoid bright moon phase for best experience. Milky Way is visible if there is no bright moon. $60 per adult. Visit our webpage
