Tours are conducted in the Rocky Mountains throughout the week. The tour starts around Sunset and lasts for 2 hours. It consists of looking through telescopes, learning about constellations/folklore, training on how to find objects in the sky, a talk about the cosmos and plenty of question & answer time. Guests are free to stay after the show to continue looking at the stars as I take down my equipment.
Tours start at sunset and last 2 hrs. Tours are offered most clear nights.
Guests are provided with a red flashlights, comfy camp seating, bug spray, snacks, and water.
The show will explore the night sky with several large telescopes and a laser pointer. We will see and learn about planets, constellations, navigation, satellites, nebula, clusters, galaxies, maybe some shooting stars, and our universe. Through telescopes we will get up close looks at these objects and take in their beauty with our own eyes. You will also have the opportunity to learn how to use a telescope and about the different types of telescopes.
The tour takes place at a easy to find trailhead just north of Boulder, Colorado (no hiking required) where phenomenal sunsets and wildlife are often seen.
Meeting location: Boulder Valley Ranch
