Welcome to Stonehenge Aotearoa!
Have you ever looked up at the night sky, and wondered about it?
Venture with us beyond Earth!
Stonehenge Aotearoa is New Zealand's one and only open air astronomical observatory. We are very lucky to have a fully functional henge here. It is the best tool to learn about the night sky and understand the patterns of stars, planets and other celestial wonders. We look forward to host you here for a Star Safari.
For more details about what happens during the programme, check out our website https://stonehenge-aotearoa.co.nz/whats-on/star-safari/
We are professional space science communicators and space sciences educators with expertise in astronomy, astrophysics, astrobiology and space sciences.
