The week before arriving at Moab, I found Red Rock Astronomy while searching for a good place to stargaze. After reading the reviews, we decided to add this to our itinerary and it was worth it. Alex, our astronomer, not only had use at the...More

I was surprised by how indifferent Alex was to the common interest of his audience in identifying constellations or looking at familiar objects through a telescope. He said the differences in cultural names and origins prevented him from discussing constellations. Really? So share some cultural...More

Alex's immense passion for both astronomy, geology, and history made our already breathtaking evening under the stars into a time-traveling adventure. He inspired and captured attention. It's obvious that he is doing this for joy. This is a must if you are in Moab.

Alex is extremely knowledgeable about astronomy and is also a good patient teacher. Our group had 6 adults and 3 children who had never used as high tech equipment as he has. We all learned alot ! We highly recommend his program.
