Under The Stars is an award winning nomadic stargazing service in the Wairarapa.
We come to you, wherever you are in the region. We specialise in small intimate star party gatherings.
Our aim is to provide memorable stargazing experiences that inspires, educates and that people will want to recommend. We want to reconnect people with the night sky and continually promote the Dark Sky Movement within the Wairarapa.
We bring everything you need for a night of stargazing, a huge portable telescope, binoculars, star charts and blankets to keep you warm as you look up. We explain what you can see, stars and constellations and the stories and science they can tell us. Depending on what objects are up that night, we take a closer look at the Moon, planets (if they are in the sky) and some nearby deep sky objects like nebulae, clusters and galaxies. We also use the sky to do some simple celestial navigation.
Choose a tour for 60 minutes or 90 minutes and are for up to 10 people. If you would like a longer tour or more people to come get in touch. We also have a special couple star party rate for those romantic evenings under the stars.
The best environmentally friendly present is a memorable experience. Treat a loved one to a special unique evening with an award-winning stargazing service.
* Vouchers are valid for one year and must be redeemed within the Wairarapa.
