Kitt Peak Observatory: "Stars galore" Tucson Nightlife Tip by mezaleski

Tucson Nightlife: 32 reviews and 38 photos

Kitt Peak has a night observation program that you need to register well in advance for. We got to spend about 2 hours viewing the stars through a 20" reflector telescope. BE PREPARED - the temperatures on Kitt Peak are about 20° cooler at night than the city of Tuscon. But it is definitely worth it.

Directions: WSW of Tucson - plan on 1½ hour drive each way.
