Welcome to Milky-Way.Kiwi
Milky-Way.Kiwi is New Zealand’s cosmic source of astronomy news, space exploration and stargazing, celebrating space for Kiwis. #yeswespace
We take a Kiwi perspective on the world news, look for “what’s in it for New Zealand” and use our knowledge and expertise to bring space closer to the public here in the country with the most beautiful night sky in the world (when is not raining).
Ponder with us on the Grand Questions of the Universe. Are we alone? What is life? What is the future of humankind?
there are …
stars in our galaxy
is the only planet where we know life exists
major mass extinctions happened before today and most species were exterminated
Why bother with space?
Walk with us among the stars!
If you are interested in learning about astronomy, telescopes and space, we are here for you. If you get stuck in choosing a telescope or you need an opinion, we can help. Every weekend we go stargazing in the dark-skied Wairarapa.
