Alex was wonderful. The night was chilly so make sure you pack extra clothes and blankets. He has some to provide you but we still needed just one more. The experience took about 2 hrs and you get to see 4-5 specific things through the high tech telescope. Pretty awesome views of the night sky. He asks great questions to... More

We spent our Spring Break in Moab in April, and we did this stargazing activity with our 11 year old and 14 year old. Even though it was very cold that night (Alex provided blankets), we enjoyed viewing the night sky and the stars through Alex's powerful telescope. The stories and explanations were interesting, and we truly enjoyed this unique... More

If you're interested in actually learning sign up to do this! Not only did we see tons of stars, but planets as well! Alex was extremely knowledgeable and answered everyone's questions! We were out about 3.5 hours and it was really cold, but Alex provided blankets for us!

Alex was incredibly full of knowledge, and a very nice guide. We got to see things we never would've seen otherwise, and learned a ton. Absolutely worth doing if you're in Moab.

It was 57 degrees when we started and 50 degrees when we got back. Our guide was Alex, who brought... More

We had an outstanding night of star, comet & planet viewing!! The guide kept in touch with us not only before we arrived but once we got to town to ensure the best chances for viewing that suited our busy schedule. He was entertaining and knowledgeable and we had a wonderful evening in the stars.

I booked this trip months ago from the UK because we didn't want to miss out and boy am I glad we did. Alex was marvellous from the start to the end. Obviously the weather cannot be controlled and the night we were booked to go was cloudy but Alex went out of his way to rearrange our outing. Two... More

What a fun thing to do in such a beautiful place. Alex was great from the moment I contacted him from Atlanta until the end of our adventure. Our weather has a bite unreliable during our stay and Alex helped us to juggle the schedule. It was a truly unique, educational and awesome experience. Alex provided the telescope, chairs and...
