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!

During July, August, and September, the Milky Way will appear at its finest, as will the giant planet Jupiter and the ringed world Saturn. Glorious summer nights at the telescope… don’t miss out!
As of June 05, most parts of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park are open from sunrise to sunset only. Galleta Meadows (where the famous metal sculptures are located), remains closed and police are citing all vehicles parked in those areas. San Diego County has prohibited all “group gatherings”, and several hotels which had been open have now closed for a month or so. I assure you that all of us Borregans are tremendously disappointed and frustrated over this extended “lockdown” and we 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 state, county, and local restrictions will be eased soon, I’ve begun accepting reservations for our summer Milky Way season of July, August, and September… and beyond!
