The Winter Stardate will be a three day convention for people interested in astronomy and viewing our magnificent night sky.

It caters for people of all levels of knowledge with a range of talks, workshops, kids programs, field trips, movies and observing sessions. At this time of the year the most spectacular regions of the Milky-Way pass overhead. This is something that cannot be seen from the northern hemisphere.

In addition, the planets Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be in our evening sky. Large telescopes will be available to explore the wonders of the Universe. Stardate also includes feasting and live music.

Stardate will be held at the grounds, observatories and lecture theatre at Stonehenge Aotearoa. The site provides spectacular scenery and near perfect observing conditions.

Plus there are lots of interesting places and activities nearby – all part of the Carterton Winter Festival.

Programs run on the afternoons and evenings of June 15, 16 and 17th. Camping and caravan sites are available to those who wish to stay overnight.

For those who do not wish to camp or caravan full details of local accommodation are available on our website.

Registration fees cover the entire 3-day programme.
