The Grand American Astronomical Experience Closer Than You Think

Astronomy takes on a new meaning for the amateur enthusiast with a customised specialist tour visiting the world’s most important observatories, a chat to an expert astronomer or even better, chance to participate in a viewing session with the Hooker 60” telescope – the world’s most powerful visual telescope – located at Mt Wilson Observatory in Los Angeles.

Well known amateur astronomer, Cris Ellis, founder of Astronomy Alive and founder and president of the Astronomical Society of Melbourne, has joined forces with Cox and Kings Travel to put together this amazing 23 day tour of the best astronomy enthusiast experiences in America.

The tour departs on October 4 2013, and visits amazing places such as the Keck and Subaru observatories on Mauna Kea Hawaii, Meteor Crater and the Kennedy Space Centre. The tour also takes in more famous sight-seeing destinations such as the Grand Canyon.

This article on IceInSpace has some more information, or you can download the Cox and Kings PDF which explains the full itinerary and everything you need to know.

It looks like a great tour! I wish I could go!
