Under the Stars
Under The Stars is an award-winning nomadic stargazing service based in Martinborough and covering the whole Wairarapa region. We come to you, wherever you are in the region. Your own back yard, your airbnb, or we can meet in an open space like a park if you don’t have a good sky view available.
We specialise in small intimate star party gatherings of minimum 2 people and up to 10. But we can handle larger groups on request.
We bring everything you need for a night of stargazing. A large portable telescope, binoculars, star charts and blankets to keep you warm. We explain what you can see, stars, constellations and the science and stories they tell us.
We use telescopes and binoculars to look at deep sky objects like nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. We also use the sky to do some simple celestial navigation and observe seasonal changes.
Star parties are fun, interesting, accessible and enjoyable for everyone, no minimum age! Email us to make a booking. Tours are available from $175.
