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.
