Overview

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.

We have been to other star parties, but this one is the best. Peter's Astronomy Adventures is a small group of people instead of the large groups at other observatories. This allows him to give a more personal experience and answer individual questions. His presentation...More

Plan on 1.5 to 2 hours from the scheduled start time. Actual tour length can vary due to group size, questions to address and viewing conditions. I don't mind if people leave 'early'

restroom facilities are a porta potty. Also it can get quite cold. There is a shed to warm up in but you miss the stars.
