Star Gazing

Martinborough, the newest proposed area to being “Dark Sky Registered” has frequent clear skies and minimal light pollution so offers a perfect canvas for exploring the night sky.

During this 90 minute introduction to astronomy you will learn about the history of astronomy, Maori folklore, celestial navigation and explore constellations. We take a look closer using a Dobsonian telescope and binoculars to get up close and personal with New Zealand’s unique southern star field. Star maps are complimentary so you can star hop and navigate your way around the sky with ease, even after the evening has finished.
