Reviews, photos and videos for program: Grand Canyon Star Party: Astronomy at the Edge of the Universe

The classes take place at NAU, the field experience at the Grand Canyon. Free time at the Canyon is a definite plus. Be prepared for a full day, each day. The star gazing can go on through the night and the group leader was more than willing to provide shuttle service until the last attendee was finished. Fortunately for him, our group finished up prior to midnight both evenings. And we all got a chance to peer very deep into the outer reaches of our galaxy. Did you ever see a black hole?

Not surprisingly, for Road Scholar, this trip proved to be both interesting and educational with a group eager to learn and experience all that this program offers. I learned new things about astronomy, geology, and Indian culture. I can recommend this tour to any amateur astronomer or a novice that just wants to be exposed to the various facets of astronomy. Personally, I had no previous experience in astronomy and while I enjoyed most of what I learned, I found that my interest in astronomy is really limited to “star gazing”. The highpoint of the tour was visiting the Grand Canyon during the “dark of the moon” and taking part in the “Star Party”.

The star party caught our interest. The program offered so much more than we expected.
