Private Events

All Private events are unique therefore the service is built to fit the event. Please contact us at: Luke@AstroTours.org,  (303).324.5831 or by clicking here to inquire about how Elevated Astronomy Tours might work for your event.

AstroTours.org can host your event at our location or provide an extra flair to your event at your location (in Colorado and beyond). Company picnics, weddings, birthdays. Whatever your event may be our services can be hired out. AstroTours.org can add a side of astronomy to your event or be the main event with a private tour. All equipment is mobile and can be moved to the event location to suit you.

Location:

  • Boulder CO-

    • we have a location just north of Boulder where we can host up to 30 guests

    • we can easily travel to your location in and around boulder

    • we have partnerships with a few of the event centers around boulder we can help set you up with to plan a bigger event

  • Winter Park/Fraser/Tabernash CO

    • we can set up at your location (most AirBnBs in this area will have really dark sky and a good driveway for us to set up in.)

    • Winter Park Resort has a partnership with us giving us access to their land and facilities

    • we can set up at many of the trailheads in the area

    • Devels Thumb Ranch has hosted Astro Tours before​

  • Walsenburg CO -

    • we have a partnership with a resort center outside of Walsenburg Colorado that is a certified dark sky area! this is great for moonless deep sky viewing​

  • Santa Maria (Baily) CO -

    • We have a partnership with the YMCA to provide programs on their summer camp in Santa Maria Colorado. ​

  • Beyond

    • Telluride CO - we are proud to be the first group to turn the San Sophia Observatory into an astronomical Observatory and stargaze from the top of the gondola in Telluride!​

    • Loveland Pass - One of Our favorite places to stargaze is up Loveland Pass beautiful dark skies just less than an hour from Denver. 

    • Keystone CO - we've done solar observing for a school group in Keystone Colorado

    • Beyond - all of our telescopes are mobile so we can set up where ever your event happens to be. The furthest we've healed a program from Boulder so far is Hot Springs Arkansas and Dubois Wyoming. We are ready and willing to travel to any clear skies to stargaze with you. 

Equipment we can supply:

  • Help planning your event around best viewing and what you would like to see in the sky

  • Informative guides to set up and explain to guests what they are seeing in the telescopes 

  • 3 to 12 large telescopes 

  • Lightning that won't interfere with the telescopes 

  • Step stools

  • Tables

  • Chairs

We can host small to medium sized groups (~30 people max) at our location. However if we're setting up at your location (in Colorado and beyond) we’ll need:

  • a dark mostly flat area to set up.

  • access to the space two hours before the program for set up and one hour after for take down

  • Parking near the the space to load/unload

  • Table/chairs would be nice, we can bring some but if there’s some already set up or in use there that’s easier

  • And if the venue is more than ~1.5 hours away from Boulder place to stay or an added expense for a hotel in the area would be really nice to avoid driving fatigued after the program.

 

We have three main shows we can do one of these, a mix of them, or something different to suit your program:

  1. a program more like our usual tour in Boulder where we have a 30min astronomy talk then 1.5 hrs of telescope time.

  2. a “side” of astronomy where guests come and go as they please and we show different things in the telescopes to be seen

  3. More driven by questions and answer time and then just show the main highlights in the telescope. (this is what I do with the girl scouts/youth groups more because they have less of an attention span)

 

Also be aware this is a weather dependent activity we are very flexible with our contracts and cancellations due to weather.
