Tangi Te Keo | Matariki Pre-Dawn Viewing

Astronomy on Tap

An early start as we take our telescopes to view the rising of Matariki on 29 June

It is a special time of the year and Matariki rises early in our skies. The Wellington Astronomical Society and Space Place set up telescopes at the Mount Victoria Lookout for a special pre-dawn viewing of the rising of Matariki during the Tangaroa Moon. Wrap up warm and cross your fingers for clear weather so we can all enjoy and celebrate Matariki.

TANGI TE KEO MT VICTORIA LOOKOUT / SATURDAY 29 JUNE / 5AM – 7AM / FREE
