  • Learned so much in a couple of hours. Kevin is awesome. My kids (11 and 15) were enthralled. Staring at the surface of the moon, talking at length about black holes. The kids were enrapted. He made it...  more »

  • Kevin is an amazing star guide and instructor! The highlight of a long trip across many national parks and this experience with the Dark Ranger eclipsed all of them. Seeing a globular cluster has changed my life. Virtually unlimited scope time in an object. Great hot drinks on a cold night. You must do this galactic tour if anywhere close to Bryce Canyon.
  • My husband and I attended Kevin's wonderful presentation a in July, 2018 near Tropic, Utah. In addition to the geological wonders, it just so happens that this area of the country is also one of the best places for viewing the night sky due to low levels of light pollution. The presentation was entertaining and educational. There were plenty of scopes set up on various objects in the sky, so we got to see a lot including an amazing close-up view of the moon, Jupiter with several moons, and (my favorite) several nebulae and galaxies. Very special thanks to Ray for helping me get some shots of the Lagoon Nebula (among other amazing things) and also for patiently reviewing some of the finer points of photographing the night sky (note - my husband booked this, so the photography lesson may be an additional activity - I'm not sure). Some practical notes: even though temperatures during the day were in the triple digits, it gets quite cool as the evening wears on, so be sure to layer. Clean facilities and hot drinks made this a very comfortable event for everyone. Thanks for creating this amazing activity!
