In association with Space & Science Festival, The Art of Night - A Night of Astrophotography Wellington is bigger and better than before.

Come join us for the biggest star party in the Southern Hemisphere and bring your DSLR Camera and tripod, or just come down to enjoy a night under the stars.

15 minutes of basic astrophotography instruction and a briefing will be held at the start of the night before we head down to the beach at the start of the Red Rocks Nature Reserve to observe and photograph the night sky.
