Tirotiro Whetū

EVENT UPDATE: The forecast for tomorrow morning is overcast, which is not ideal for stargazing. Tirotiro Whetū is still going ahead and the iwi are looking forward to hosting us at Takaparawhau / Michael Savage Memorial Park. Those that are getting up early, be ready for a 6am start.

Join Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and watch Matariki rise at Takaparawhau! The Auckland Astronomical Society will be there with telescopes and binoculars to help you see the Matariki star cluster and other stars as they appear in the sky before sunrise. Enjoy a hot drink as we welcome the new year.

Proudly supported by Ōrākei Local Board.
