April Community Stargazing Evening

Kaikōura Astronomers invite you and your whanau to join us for a free community stargazing evening from the Hapuku School grounds. Due to the incredible support of Destination Kaikōura and the Kaikōura Lions we now have a tradtional telescope with some new equipment and a fantastic eVscope and two touch pads which you can use to control the telescope to view objects of specific interest in the night sky. This is a very interactive experience!

Where: Hapuku School, 596 Kincaid Road, Hapuku. Just park out the front and come in through the front gate. We will be there around the back!

Top Tips: Dress warm!! Coat, hat, gloves etc. We highly recommend checking out our stargazing tips section before you come for the best experience on the night.

Weather: If the weather is looking poor we will postpone to the evening. Keep a eye on our facebook page for updates.
