Claim Your Spot

Stargazing tours are offered most Thursdays and Saturdays throughout the year. Tuesdays may be opened during peak periods. Check the calendar below. Green shaded dates are available, orange shaded dates are SOLD OUT and Gray shaded dates are unavailable to regular bookings. Click an available date and start your booking. If a date shows SOLD OUT, I can accept waitlist requests only. To be on the waitlist send an email to peter(at)astronomyadventures(dot)com Include a mobile phone number and email address so I can contact you. While I can never be sure if spots might open, I do sometimes have late cancellations.

Groups of 10 or more have greater flexibility and can be booked for any night assuming I am available.

The online shopping cart is available 24/7. Transactions are securely processed by Stripe. Adjust age category totals to correctly reflect the members of your party.

Cancellation and refund policies

In the event of a late cancellation or no-show on a night that has been confirmed, no refund will be granted. I reserve the right to cancel a tour when the group size total for that night is fewer than four people.

Leisure Clients:

If a Leisure client cancellation is made with 5 days notice, full payment will be returned.
For all Leisure client cancellations with less than 5 days notice, 50% of the total will be returned.
For late cancellations occurring 48 hours or less before a tour start time, no refund will be granted.


Group cancellations with less than 30 days notice forfeit the $100 deposit.

Weather Challenges:

I work diligently to determine if a guided night sky tour is possible when there are questionable weather conditions. If necessary, I make a call 90 minutes before the scheduled start time to cancel or reschedule. If you do not hear from me, please expect the Astronomy Adventure to be ‘ON’ as planned. Northern New Mexico, with its mountainous terrain, provides a good example of what scientists call ‘micro-climates’. Don’t get psyched-out. If the sky appears cloudy or overcast above Santa Fe, please do not assume the same is true for the dark site.

If a guided night sky tour is not possible due to inclement weather or complete overcast, I will attempt to reschedule the tour for the next possible date.

**Please note: when I offer a rescheduled date and you accept the arrangement, all policies regarding weather challenges, late cancellation and no-show still apply**

When a group or leisure client preemptively cancels before I can make a careful determination about weather, such cases are handled as a no-show and no refunds will be granted.
