  • I had to hogtie my husband into going to this-he was afraid it would be too cold and he didn’t understand Mike’s amazing wealth of knowledge. My hubby later said this was the best part of our trip...

  • Truly one of the best off the beaten path things you can do in Estes. The high elevation makes for amazing star gazing and the observatory just opens the sky up even more. The telescope is huge for its class and the guides are passionate and extremely knowledgeable about their craft. On top of all this, the observatory is there to get local kids into science so donations made for the star gazing service go to a great cause. Really great experience. Be prepared to be up late!
  • Mike was amazing. Not only does he have a large knowledge of stars but he also shows you the passion he has for them. Great visit with my family
