Awesome! Not only did we see ALL the stars, the Milky Way, galaxies, and so much more...both with the naked eye as well as through high powered telescopes, we saw the International Space Station as it blazed through the sky (for about 30 seconds), a meteor, and a satellite. Though I don't remember their names, our guides, a father and son, were fantastic. I wish we could have gone back and done the later tour to see the planets, but we ran out of time during our visit. If you or your kids love science, space and the stars, or if you just want something very cool to do, this is great!!

This is a great outing for 10-100. Be prepared for cold weather and a bit of uncertainty as to the event start.

As a professional astronomer and former educator I found the staff to be knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. My daughter absolutely enjoyed it and spoke highly of what she saw. These presenters have great ability to inform and enlighten the public. They are not only a Fun business for those inclined to use this to bolster their science credentials, but also a great public service.

Rick certainly knows his stars and constellations, and is truly enthusiastic about teaching! It's been a long time since I've seen such a star-filled sky, and it was beautiful. We learned so many interesting things. We are from Boston and went in April. We wore pants, long sleeves and light jackets. We "scoffed" at the company's suggestion to bring warm clothes. THEY WERE RIGHT! Thankfully, they provided parkas and blankets and we were very comfortable. Just a suggestion, bring your hats and mittens, even us tough Bostonians needed them! :-)

This is one of the best and most unique activities to do in Sedona. My husband and I had such a fabulous time, even though the night we chose was 40 degrees! The sky was crystal clear, and we were surrounded by a blanket of stars. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We saw a bounty of constellations, and viewed so many cool astronomical sites through the telescope (like a white dwarf, and Jupiter!). I was pointing out constellations to my husband, every night after our star gazing adventure. We had a blast, and definitely recommend this activity!

We did the 10pm viewing and it was great. Rick was our astronomer and he was fantastic - very engaging and quite funny. It was amazing what we were able to see. I'd definitely recommend doing this - the sky is incredible out there.
