Co będziecie robić

Connect with the cosmos with a naked-eye tour of the night sky combined with telescope viewing of celestial objects. Meet the constellations, get a close-up peek at the planets, and see the crater details on the moon. You'll also learn some of the ancient star stories associated with the constellations from different cultures around the world.

This one-hour stargazing experience is suitable for all ages. It takes place in Fountain Hills, AZ, the 17th city in the world to receive designation as an International Dark Sky Community.

You will leave this experience with a great knowledge of the night sky and ancient stories about it, awe for the cosmos, and appreciation for dark sky preservation efforts.

Guests are welcome to bring cameras for astrophotography toward the end of the experience, but I do not offer any advice or lessons.

I started teaching naked-eye astronomy to a group of high school students in 2015. Today, I am the author of the website NightSkyTourist.com and host of the Night Sky Tourist podcast. Each episode ends with a naked-eye tour of the night sky for that week.

I am the Vice President of the Fountain Hills Dark Sky Association and sit on the board of directors for the International Dark Sky Discovery Center. I am an Advocate with the International Dark Sky Association and am one of four "Star Dudes" for ADERO Scottsdale, the local resort that recently landed on Travel + Leisure's "World's Best New Hotels" list. As a Star Dude, I provide similar experiences for their guests as what I'm offering to you.

This was such a cool experience. Vicky was knowledgeable about all of the constellations, travel patterns of the planets and answering general questions. We were lucky to have a private experience with her as she showed us the different planets and stars in the sky. Never have I ever seen Saturns rings!!

Vicky is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. My boyfriend and I went for my birthday and we initially thought an hour was too long. Vicky made it a breeze and provided us with great knowledge of the stars, moon, planets, and constellations. We were able to see Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and the moon through the telescope. It is amazing, for those of you looking to book this experience, just do it. It is well worth it.

We had an absolutely wonderful time! This was so much fun and informative. The night sky in Arizona is a must see and Vicky makes it so interesting. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

Very informative and enjoyable evening. My girls enjoyed learning about the night sky and the stories behind the stars. Vicky made us feel very comfortable from the beginning, offering us chairs and staying to answer any questions we had even beyond our one-hour tour time.

Such a wonderful experience - we have a new appreciation for and understanding of astronomy. Vicky and Ted shared their passion for the stars and planets with us through use of binoculars and two very cool telescopes. We saw Mercury, Venus and Mars, along with so many constellations. Great way to spend the evening!
