All aboard, all aboard, calling all passengers for the ‘Interdimensional Cosmic Flight 101’.

This is an experience of a lifetime! Come journey through the Oamaru night sky

with your host and navigator, cultural astronomer and stargazing guide Amanda Page.

 

Jump into your imagination and travel back in time, watch as the observable universe

unfolds its secrets and our spaceship the ‘Stellar Origins’ sails through the cosmos on a

sea of star stories and science.

 

Peer into deep space through your choice of lenses (telescope, binoculars and naked eye     

observation) to look at nebulae, galaxies and star clusters. Watch as constellations come into viewing range, revealing their shape and origins while listening to a blend of ancient star lore, facts and stats.Our seasoned star guide will show you how to plot a southern course and

tell the seasons from the stars!

 

If conditions are right and our course is true, Te Ikaroa the long fish will flash its mighty tail, Dhinawen the emu will grace the night sky and the giant Waka will shine brightly.
