New Years Eve with a sparkle – Stargazing Experience with Good Heavens

December 31, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 pm

$65 – $130

Lean back comfortably in a moon chair to look up and see the thousands of stars visible in a Dark Sky Sanctuary. Aotea’s Sanctuary status means that our dark sky is certified magnificent. Plus, Aotea is warmer than many other New Zealand stargazing places, too.

Our guide will draw constellations and tell a range of multicultural stories and interesting astronomical facts. So enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or herbal tea, while you memorise what’s in the sky in a light-hearted and fun way.

Use our telescope to look at special stars and deep sky objects. Many of these are unique to the Southern Hemisphere. And they look truly dazzling in our super dark sky. A great opportunity to take a closer look at a planet. Spot a satellite, a meteor or a distant galaxy. Marvel at the stars with us. There is so much to see!

New Years Eve is a great time for a different perspective on our place in the Universe.

Subject to limited availability of 12 stargazers.
