SPECIAL EVENT: Matariki Māori New Year [Dawn Viewing]

$240.00

6am-8

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.

Outdoor: Guided Telescope Viewing* (45 minutes)

Stargaze the Southern night sky. With an astronomer grade telescope, we will view the rings of Saturn, the stripes for Jupiter, the visually striking craters of our Moon. Learn the celestial navigation used by our ancestors to find Aotearoa New Zealand. Receive the legends behind our constellations during the laser show. Locate sun birthing Nebulas and Open Star Clusters.

Indoor: Pop Up Planetarium (45 minutes)

An Interactive Universe Display allows us to fly virtually from Earth, beyond our Solar System, to neighbouring Galaxies. This journey is charted by the particular interests of show goers so you can be sure to have a personalised, informative, and mind expanding show.

Tour the Cosmos from the comfort of Earth.

Moon chairs provided.
