Get a fun, inspiring night with our elite science communicators: Hari, a TEDx-featured astrobiologist who interned at NASA and trained for Mars and Sam, who is pursuing his passion for astrophysics and stars, after having spent years flying amongst them as a pilot.
Hari and Sam share their love for space and astronomy through Star Safari, which is a social enterprise that brings access to the night sky for everyone.
If you have kids 15 and under, bring them for free! Kids should not pay for inspiration.
All school students 15 and under and smaller kids are FREE because no kids should pay for inspiration. Out of respect for other customers, we do need to make sure they are supervised so please check our terms and conditions. https://star-safari.nz/2021/04/17/terms-and-conditions-night-tours/
When the sky is clear, or even partially clear, we start with the telescope viewing. We don’t want you to miss a thing from our beautiful, dark night sky of the heavenly Wairarapa.
When the sky is cloudy, we gather in the hall for an interactive presentation of the night sky where we use Astroreality 3D Printed Augmented Reality products, online telescopes from SLOOH and our own experience of the night sky.
Included: Our own Mars exhibition
Our Mars exhibition is made with support from top Mars researchers by the New Zealand Astrobiology Network. We invite you to get a sneak peek of the Red Planet and learn about New Zealand’s contribution to Mars exploration. You can find more about the Mars exhibition here https://www.astrobiology.nz/mars-exhibition-opens-at-stonehenge-aotearoa/
What we know: You are the centre of the Universe and if anyone says otherwise then send them over to us to explain why that is. From here, discover what’s epic in the night sky, see with your own eyes back in time, visit astonishing places in our galaxy and maybe, just maybe, see an alien pointing their green laser back at you. If you do, please let us know asap.
Please note we are a completely separate business from Stonehenge Aotearoa, if you want to visit the henge then you will need to visit their website for opening times.
We look forward to hosting you for Star-Safari.
