    Explore the Night Sky with a Guided Astronomy Tour


    Operated By: Elevated Astronomy Tours

    Tours are conducted in the Rocky Mountains throughout the week. The tour starts around sunset and lasts for two hours. It consists of looking through telescopes, learning how to find objects in the sky using binoculars, a talk about the cosmos and a Q & A session. Guests are free to stay after the show to continue looking at the stars as I take down my equipment.

    Sample Itinerary
    Tours start at sunset and last two hours. Tours are offered most clear nights.

    Guests are provided with a red flashlights, comfy camp seating, bug spray, snacks, hot water, tea, instant coffee, hot chocolate and cookies.

    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.

    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
