Matariki is a small but distinctive star cluster whose appearance in the north eastern pre-dawn sky marks the start of a new phase of life.

Using portable telescopes, astronomers from Carter Observatory will give you the opportunity to get a real-time experience of Matariki rising. Iwi will explain the significance of the constellation and use the signs to predict planting for the new season. This will then inform the start of an exciting planting project later in the year, involving Museum of Wellington City & Sea and Te Wharewaka o Poneke Charitable Trust.

Participation is free and includes use of the telescopes.
Dawn on Saturday 28 June and Saturday 6 July is at 7:48am. Join us earlier to hear from local Iwi and astronomers about Matariki. Please note that the viewings are weather dependent, and updates will be on Facebook.
