SPECIAL EVENT: Matariki Māori New Year [Dawn Viewing]
6am-7 @ Browns Bay Beach, North Shore, Auckland
Matariki signals the Māori New Year. It is a time of renewal, reflection, and rebirth in New Zealand that begins at the time of year when the Matariki star cluster breaks through the horizon before dawn.
Note: This will occur at 5:30am but will not be visible from Auckland’s perspective until 6am due to Aotea (Great Barrier Island).
60 minute guided tour of our Southern sky.
Through our Newtonian telescope, we will view the radiant rings of Saturn, the many moons of Jupiter, and the striking craters of Marama (our own moon) seen in Maximum Resolution.
Learn about celestial navigation and our major constellations during our laser show.
Limited moon chairs and hot drinks provided – BYO mug.
Kids up to 10 y/o are welcome to come along for free.
