The dawn rising of the star cluster Matariki is the herald of the Maori New Year.

Also known at the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters, Subaru and the Krittika, they are perhaps, the most celebrated of all stars. They are the oldest mentioned in literature and played a significant role in cultures around the world both past and present.

In this presentation by Kay Leather and Richard Hall we explore this celestial wonder and their ancient meanings and significance. Afterwards, weather permitting, we will observe other wonders of the night sky through one of our large telescopes.

Bookings recommended. This special program is part of the Winter Stardate.

For those not registered for Stardate, there is a separate fee for this event.
