If you want an out of this world family day out in Sedona, then why not spend it with the night sky!
Sedona Sky Gazing Tours offer incredible experiences where the family can explore the solar system, the stars and the planets - all in the amazing outdoors of Arizona where the light pollution is low and the stars are out in force.
Sedona Star Gazing Tours take you just out of the city to where it's darker, which means the views from the telescope are even more incredible. At your meeting point, you will relax in chairs and blankets, and listen to amazing facts and stories about the night sky by professional astronomers.
The state of the art telescopes, along with big laser pointers will help you always see what they are referring to. The ratio of astronomers and telescopes is always low, so you will always get a great experience rather than waiting for queues of people to finish their turn.
You will get to experience planets, double stars, star clusters, and even the rings around certain planets.
They astronomers will talk about the various objects within the solar systems, as well as constellations, and other fascinating topics - and they are there to answer your questions too!
