Becky is a superb presenter, her passion for the sky is contagious, her knowledge inspirational and the content is easy to engage with. You don’t even realise how cold it is when you're viewing the night sky with Becky. An excellent evening activity for anyone with the added bonus of a laser! Thank you Becky for two great viewings, here’s to the next.

Nicola Belsham, Life Enriched Holidays

Under the Stars Astronomy introduces and explores the universe in real, personable and down to earth language, that never waivers in enthusiasm or excitement. Viewing the dark sky with UNDER THE STARS, is like seeing the Ocean for the first time – only, there is a LOT more to see!

This is a very rare and opportune experience that I highly recommend to everyone. Becky has an exceptional understanding and a deep passion for astronomy and astrophysics and can provide some true insight into the nature of the heavens and the influence they have had on human development. Highly recommended to anyone who has any interest in stars and astronomy.

Lily and Seb, Greytown

What a great experience, absolutely loved seeing the moon up close and personal with binoculars and a big telescope, learning some navigation and history in a unique and interactive way. Becky is lots of fun and full of knowledge. Very flexible service, we booked last minute and Becky even came to us after her night class to make it happen, because the night we booked was forecast to be cloudy. Now that’s dedication! Communication was always very prompt. We had a wonderful time, would absolutely recommend this as a holiday treat or family activity.

Chairman, Martinborough Dark Sky Society

We're so lucky to have such a talented and experienced astronomy guide move her family to the Wairarapa to set up this new and exciting business 'Under the Stars' inside the proposed new International Dark Sky Reserve in the Wairarapa.

Loren and Clint, Bideford

Everyone loved it and we were captivated by your knowledge and passion. It has certainly brought a greater awareness of our environment. I’ll be definitely recommending you to others.
