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 03, 2020)
Most parts of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park are open ONLY from sunrise to sunset. Galleta Meadows (where the famous metal sculptures are located) remain CLOSED, and law enforcement is citing vehicles parked in those areas. In other words, there’s nowhere to set up a telescope at night! Hotels and restaurants are open, but San Diego County continues to PROHIBIT all public and private “gatherings”, so it’s not clear when the Night Sky Tours will be able to resume. I assure you that many Borregans are disappointed and frustrated over this extended “lockdown” and are looking forward to inviting you back to our enchanting desert village. And, as you might imagine, I am especially excited to share once again our magnificent night sky. In hopes that county and local restrictions will be lifted soon, I have begun accepting reservations for the months ahead. I recommend checking back closer to the time you’d like to visit.
