Matariki Lights at Stardome

For one special week to mark Aotearoa’s inaugural Matariki public holiday, Stardome will be opening its doors to visitors free of charge every evening from 18 to 25 June 2022. Drop in for live, presenter-led Matariki kōrero under the planetarium stars. In each 10-minute show you’ll hear about ngā whetū (the stars), ngā aorangi (the planets), and the many stories written in our night skies passed down from generation to generation.

This will run separately to Stardome’s annual Ngā Whetū o Matariki programme, featuring a full-length planetarium show.
