Our organization has been giving specialized educational tours for nearly a decade. All of our tours are operated by a guide with a degree in his/her respective field of either archaeology, paleontology, geology or physics. We provide unique hands-on educational experiences for our guests. It's a personal experience to see the rings of Saturn through a telescope for the very first time! To think that the planet's actual light traveled millions of miles through the vastness of space directly to your eye! However, the planets are only the beginning of your journey. Our telescopes have an astronomical database of over 40,000 objects from which to choose for your viewing pleasure. (Please bear in mind that all objects are not visible at all times.)
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Join us today on an expedition to the stars, just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada! Our evening begins with hotel pickup in Vegas (time varies depending upon time of year) and a ride to Red Rock Canyon. The park is usually full by the time we arrive, but if you haven't at least seen the escarpment from the scenic viewpoint, you need to. We'll stop at a couple locations for photographs.
Duration: 30 minutes
Location: Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Las Vegas, Nevada
After our brief stop at Red Rock Canyon, we'll venture to the Spring Mountain range and Lovell Canyon to view the galaxy and beyond through our Celestron Nexstar 8SE. Learn about the equipment, participate in its setup and operation and see the moon, planets and stars like you've never seen them before...well, unless you've been to an actual observatory, of course.
Duration: 3 hours
Location: Spring Mountains National Recreational Area, Blue Diamond, Nevada
