People of Earth!
We offer the DELUXE stargazing experience featuring:
Add us to your must-do list when traveling near Bryce Canyon National Park. Join us for public telescope tours which are capped at 21 people (winter) or 42 people (summer). Alternatively, when you book a large or small private telescope tour, you can customize that night to your specific group interests.
Yes, reservations are required.
That way we will know how many
telescopes to set up.
Gunning Down Covid-19 !
Yes, we are still OPEN, but only because of aggressive Covid-19 safety measures. Among the ranks of the Dark Rangers® we have more degrees and minors in biological sciences, than we do in our other fields of academic study (e.g. astronomy, physics, geology, and engineering). We are as certain about this pandemic being a serious threat as we are that Earth is NOT flat.
HI-TECH DISINFECTION TECHNOLOGY
We are upgrading from Clorox wipes to Protexus's hydrostatic sprayers armed with sodium troclosene (NaDCC). Without being toxic to humans, this is a stronger anti-viral chemical, with longer potency, than even bleach (NaOCL).
FREE PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Each guest will receive a pair of nitrile gloves, and a disposable face mask expertly crafted from blue shop-towel. Until CDC guidelines change, you will be required to wear both (or your own verified equivalent protection), while at the Dark Ranger Observatory.
At 7777 ft. elevation, our clean, thin, desert air offers little UV protection. The closest star (our Sun), will give you a sunburn before 9am! That natural disinfectant bathes our outdoor facility everyday. After sunset, Protexus wielding Dark Rangers will finish the job, rending "enveloped viruses" like Novel Coronavirus non-infectious.
We also have PLENTY of toilet paper and hand sanitizer. :-)
