Under the Stars – Nightsky experience

Under The Stars is an award winning nomadic stargazing service in the Wairarapa.

They come to us, specialising in small intimate star party gatherings.

Under the Stars aim is to provide memorable stargazing experiences that inspires, educates and that people will want to recommend. They want to reconnect people with the night sky and continually promote the Dark Sky Movement within the Wairarapa.

Your guide will bring everything you need for a night of stargazing, a huge portable telescope, binoculars, star charts and blankets to keep you warm as you look up. They explain what you can see, stars and constellations and the stories and science they can tell us. Depending on what objects are up that night, you will take a closer look at the Moon, planets (if they are in the sky) and some nearby deep sky objects like nebulae, clusters and galaxies. You also use the sky to do some simple celestial navigation.
