Great Experience - we were able to see a lot of Shooting Stars & Milkyway with our naked eyes! A must in your To Do list when exploring & travelling!

Despite a full moon and some cloudy weather, we had a great experience. Keith is so knowledgeable - both about the sky and Waterton - that we loved listening to him and learning from him. Next time we are in town, we will definitely do the Dark Sky Adventure Tour!

What a lovely experience taking the Starry Skies Townsite Stroll Tour on Wednesday October 7, 2020. Keith took us down to the edge of the lake at the south end of the townsite and proceeded to wow and entertain us with his knowledge and stories. What a great way to cap off a wonderful visit to one of Alberta's most beautiful treasurers - Waterton Lakes National Park .

We took part in the Dark Sky Guides "Discovery Tour" and had a fascinating evening star gazing. Keith was an excellent guide pointing out the planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars as well as numerous constellations that came to life with his tablet which made it easier to picture each constellation and the stars we were looking at. With the use of his lazer pointer we could easily follow as he pointed out the fascinating objects in the night sky. We even saw a shooting star and then learned all about meteors & meteorites and even got to handle a true meteorite piece. Keith also included information on local First Nations legends regarding the constellations. We would recommend this to everyone and would love to do another of their tours.

We went out with Keith and he did a great job. It was a very fun and knowlegable tour overall and he answered any questions and made it all very personable. Never seen anything like the night sky in Waterton.
