Owner description: Don't miss your opportunity to view Moab and the surrounding area in its unique dark sky setting. SEE the stars & planets as you have never seen them before! COME ALONG with Alex as he shows you faraway galaxies, glittering star clusters, nebulae, & other breathtaking celestial sights with his high-powered telescopes and learning tools. Groups from 2-40, young & old alike, can share in this spectacular stargazing experience. Daytime solar viewing also available.

My husband & I went on a Red Rock Astronomy tour & thoroughly enjoyed it. Our night was right on the edge of a moon out period, when the moon is too bright to see the rest of the sky. However, Alex took advantage of that - we viewed the moon through his large telescope & talked about the moon exploration program. We were also able to view Saturn & Neptune & the crab nebula & other sights. However, my main takeaway is how important it is to keep learning, keep investigating, keep being curious & looking things up. Alex knows a lot about the skies above us & it's clear he loves them & loves to learn and teach about them. It was an inspirational evening as well as very pleasant to be out & enjoy the dark. If I am in Moab again, I will go to this program again.

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.

Using a quote from a movie about Moab's night sky, "It's full of stars" would be a perfect reason to view it with RedRock Astronomy. Alex will take you to the most viewable spot of the night sky, take you on a journey of our solar system and allow you to see spectacular visions through his telescope that you'll never experience again. Unless you have your own scope. He explains everything for the kids to understand to the adults and will make your night sky viewing one to remember. This is a must do for Moab vacationers.
