It was originally used by sailors who were crossing vast oceans with the intention of striking land.

Astro-navigation is still used today in space exploration, such as when the Mars missions were guided through the solar system. It uses the same principles as those used by sailors for hundreds of years. In Celestial Navigation, you’ll learn navigational techniques in a fun and entertaining environment.

Celestial Navigation is a two-hour learning session, presented in our 360-degree planetarium theatre. We take you on a guided tour to familiarise yourself with important directional stars and constellations as seen from New Zealand and other parts of the world. Here’s your chance to learn this time-honoured skill in an interactive environment!

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for shows. Late entry into the planetarium is not possible once the show has started.
