Meet Crystal, your experienced Night Sky Guide. With over 12 years in the field as a Night Sky Park Ranger and 15 years as a Professional Naturalist, she is stoked to share her passion for the night sky and astronomy with you! Crystal is a Certified Interpretive Guide, with the National Association for Interpretation and co-founder of Moab Dark Skies.
Her telescope of choice is a manual 14-inch Dobsonian, perfect for viewing deep space objects like nebulae, galaxies, and faint star clusters - as well as planets and the lunar surface. Her favorite deep space objects are the Orion Nebula and Whirlpool Galaxy (and yes, that furry glob in her jacket is a puppy).
"Crystal doesn't recite facts, or merely tell you how important something is; she tells a story about the desert and the night sky." -Star Party Participant
