  • Friendly and informative presentation by a real astronomer. He was willing to spend as long as you wanted and explain things simply for the uninitiated.

  • The experience is great. Easy drive to park & short walk (down a red-lit path) to the observatory. Interesting presentation, viewing on screen and through a telescope followed by a question & answer period. The astronomer (Jim) REALLY knew his stuff. Not one question was left unanswered, and his patience in understanding and answering questions from children was admirable! Most impressed with Jim’s ability to quote facts and figures off the top of his head when answering random questions about our solar system and the known universe.
  • Wonderful experience. We planned our whole vacation around the Eagle Eye Observatory session. Jim, the astronomer, was great and very informative of celestial bodies. We saw the Andromeda and Whirlpool galaxy. Andromeda is nearest galaxy to Milky Way. The Milky Way was more visible without white lights and light pollution. We saw Saturn and Jupiter. 🪐
