Event description
Discover the night sky we love from the observatory in the heart of Wairarapa. Every Friday and Saturday.

About this Event

Check out our starting times as they differ from season to season and with the sunset.

Usually on Fridays we start at 7:30PM except from November to February when we start at 8PM. On Saturdays it varies with the sunset.

The gate opens about half hour before the event starts.

What we do

We will begin with an introduction of our observation targets and an astronomical tour of the henge, and watch the sunset.

As the stars appear, we are taking you on a cosmic tour of the night sky.

When it is dark you get to see what's hidden inside the amazing night sky, looking through our giant telescopes.

We finish late.

Bring warm clothing, it gets cold at night.

If the sky is cloudy or is raining we will be hosting talks on space and astronomy.

How far can you see in space? How many stars are in a galaxy? Is there life on Mars? Why is the sky blue? What is happening in space? Why did we not go back to the Moon? Bring your questions to us.

Look through our telescopes, ask any questions and enjoy the famous dark night sky in Wairarapa with us. Peer into the depths of the Universe, learn about black holes, the lives of the stars, life in the Cosmos, rockets, spaceflight, aliens and all things space.
