While in residence, join us on Tuesday and Saturday evenings at Enchantment Circle where our expert astronomers share their in-depth knowledge of Sedona’s renowned night sky using an array of powerful telescopes and binoculars. While navigating the stars above, you will learn the story of the constellations and delve deeper into space to view the planets, binary stars, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. On nights when the moon is favorable for viewing, explore its crated surface, mountain ranges and smooth mare in stunning detail. Bring your cell phone to capture incredible images using the telescope as a high powered telephoto lens.
This event is subject to weather conditions.
