Weather permitting, about 20 minutes after sunset, a laser guided tour is given on the highlights of that evening sky. Followed by visual observations with telescopes with assistance from members of the park friends, lasting approximately 2 hours.
City of Rocks programs are given at the Orion group campsite. The Gene & Elizabeth Simon Observatory located at the campsite further compliments the setting.
Rockhound programs are given at the viewing patio, just west of the Visitors’ Center.
Both parks have a uniqueness and wonder.
