Are you fascinated by the stars? Join navigation expert and former Senior Navigation Instructor CDR David Hedgley (Rtd.) and a group of NZ Navy Navigation Officers at the Navy Museum and discover the basics of navigating by the stars.

You'll find out how to use a sextant, pick the stars and some interesting facts about the Earth. In a second session on Maungauika - North Head you'll learn how to use the Earth's meridian to find your position, the importance of time and you may even be able to watch the spin of the Earth with your own eyes!

Please note: The sessions follow on from each other so you need to attend the first one to get the most out of the second session.

Free but spaces are limited so please reserve your spot now.
