Milky-Way.Kiwi is a social enterprise that promotes access to the night sky for all people.
We are a team of science communicators who take a Kiwi perspective on the space world news, look for “what’s in it for New Zealand” and use our knowledge and expertise to bring space and astronomy closer to the public, here, in the country with the most beautiful night sky in the world.
We partnered with Astroreality because they have amazing educational resources: 3D-printed mini planets, notebooks (and we always loved a good notebook), mugs – who wouldn’t want to drink their coffee with the Moon? All of these products are enhanced with augmented reality. What does that mean is that all you need to do is scan them with your phone and discover a wealth of up to date content and some very cool graphics. Check them out in our Cosmic Shop.
We love their quality and their tactile design: you can feel the surface of the planets on the models and the notebooks.
Our pic of cool stuff in the night sky this time of the year
OSIRIS-REx has been at Bennu for about a month on its mission to examine the asteroid and get a sample to bring back to Earth in 2023.
Join us every weekend for a Star Safari in the dark and beautiful Wairarapa.
SLOOH is and amazing online astronomy programme that we have been using to learn about the night sky and we highly recommend it for anyone who wants to dive deep into the Universe. Slooh is awesome because you can use giant telescopes around the world to take amazing photos of the night sky, like the one above or do your own research.
