If you missed the lunar eclipses last year you’re in luck. There’s another chance to watch a lunar eclipse in the night sky but it’s your last chance to catch one until 2018!

Come along to Stardome and see a short show to learn more about eclipses and then take a look through the telescopes. Gaze up at the dark sky above Maungakiekie and watch as the Moon enters the dark central core of Earth’s shadow, high in the night sky. This eclipse is very quick so you’ll have to find yourself a nice, clear view to catch it. It’s a strange and spectacular phenomenon to watch.

Planetarium shows start at 8.00pm and run every 25 minutes. This event is dependent on good weather, so keep your fingers crossed!

$5 donation per person.
