Autumn Night Sky 2023
With the clocks back to normal we can enjoy the evening sky at a reasonable hour again. This year the planets return to view an we say farewell to Orion as we welcome Scorpio back into the evening sky.
In the planetarium we transport you above the cloud deck and demonstrate exactly what is above your heads tonight, pointing out some common constellations from both western and local Maori cultures.
When you leave the planetarium you will be able to look up and recognise the Southern Cross and several other significant objects, any planets that may be present, and feel more connected to the stars like our ancestors were.
