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 / SMOKE UPDATE (as of October 22, 2020)
Hotels are open, and restaurants presently offer dine-in service (at 25% capacity) as well as outdoor seating and takeout meals. Smoke/haze from western wildfires still occasionally swirls over Borrego and reduces the transparency of our sky, sometimes making quality observing challenging. For the foreseeable future guests will be required to adhere to ALL STATE AND COUNTY HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS, including social distancing and wearing facemasks. I’m sorry that these requirements still remain, but for the health and safety of my guests (and, of course, myself) it’s wise to be cautious. Thank you for your understanding in this uncertain time. After a seven-month hiatus, I’m excitedly looking forward to sharing with you our magnificent universe in the months ahead!
