Private Stargazing Tours


Private stargazing in Joshua Tree

Perfect for any occasion! The Twentynine Palms Astronomy Club offers private stargazing tours and night sky presentations in Joshua Tree to entertain and educate you about our cosmic neighborhood. From the Moon and Planets, to distant nebulae and star clusters in the Milky Way, even all the way to other galaxies in the vast universe; these fascinating objects will come alive in our telescopes, all with personal narration from our expert astronomer guides.

These presentations include telescope viewing, binoculars and laser constellation tours. Private night sky tours typically last around two hours and are offered around the Joshua Tree and Morongo Basin area at a location of your choice, including from the comfort of your AirBnB or event venue, or from our dark sky site, the Adobe Observatory. Throughout the year start times for stargazing tours vary from about 5pm in winter to 9pm in the summer. Let our expert astronomers guide you around the night sky!

Our rates are based on number of guests and the length of the presentation.

For a typical star party for a small private group of 1-8 guests,
our rate would be $500 total.

Larger events such as corporate parties and weddings are available per request.

Please email us at 29palmsastronomy@gmail.com or send a text to Steve at 760-401-3004 if you are interested in or have questions about our availability and rates for private events.
