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.

Peter knows his stuff and is very nice and enthusiastic. He pointed out a lot of constellations, star clusters (like the seven sisters), and told us about interesting history. His enthusiasm is contagious and I highly recommend Astronomy Adventures!! It was a beautiful experience.

As a birthday wish we were able to attend a session of astronomy adventures in mid-November. Peter did an outstanding job explaining and demonstrating the celestial canopy. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in spite of the cold while coyotes yipped in the background. It was a memorable New Mexican experience we will cherish.

The highlight of our trip to Santa Fe (and we did a lot of cool things!) Peter is a fun and informative host. He doesn't just point the telescope at the night sky, but also provides an interesting historical context for how each object was discovered. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Very fun! Peter explains things in lay man's terms so it is understandable and very informative! We learned so much about our night sky. As you're driving out to the location it feels pretty isolated but when you get there it is beautiful! I'd your looking for something unique, this is a blast!

Peter is so knowledgeable and has a great "delivery". The Carl Sagan of Santa Fe! If you have even the slightest interest in the night sky, this a an experience you must seek out. Thanks a million, Peter. We loved every second.

Peter, did an outstanding job. We enjoyed the small group and the very thorough explanation of what we were looking at. The dark site was perfect. We will attend again!

This was an amazing experience, I'm so glad I did this while visiting Santa Fe. The guide was great, very passionate and knowledgeable. He explained the science of what we were seeing and also a lot of history of the field of astronomy. The night sky was unbelievable, living in a city I've never seen so many stars before. There...
