Sights that boggle the mind are visible each night in the clear dark skies over Southern California’s Anza-Borrego Desert—colorful stars, stellar clusters, planets, star-forming nebulae, Earth-orbiting satellites, distant galaxies and more. Treat yourself or your family to a truly inspiring and personalized tour of the cosmos above Borrego Springs—California's first and only International Dark Sky Community—with the power of a large telescope and one of America's favorite celestial tour guides.  This is one journey you won't soon forget!

COVID UPDATE (as of July 13, 2020)
The Anza-Borrego Desert State Park remains CLOSED from sunset to sunrise. Galleta Meadows (where the famous metal sculptures are located) remain CLOSED both day and night, and law enforcement is citing vehicles parked in those areas. And San Diego County continues to PROHIBIT public and private “gatherings” everywhere. In other words, there’s nowhere to set up a telescope at night! While hotels are open, San Diego County has taken a step backward and has now CLOSED indoor restaurants until August; currently, only outdoor seating and takeout meals are available. Because of these restrictions, it’s still not clear when the Night Sky Tours will be able to resume. I assure you that I am both disappointed and frustrated over this continued “lockdown”, but for the health and safety of my guests (and, of course, myself) it’s better to be overly cautious. Thank you all for your patience and understanding in this uncertain time. One thing is definite, however. The night sky will still be there when this all ends, and I’m excitedly looking forward to sharing with you our magnificent universe in the months ahead!
