To find Matariki you have to get up before dawn and catch this beautiful cluster rising just before the Sun. The sky will be brighter because of the approaching dawn so Matariki can be tricky to spot if you don't know where to look. This video shows you how to find Matariki.
Milky-Way.Kiwi is a social enterprise for quality and affordable access to the night sky run by professional space science communicators. We provide educational services for teachers and schools – Spaceward Bound NZ, stargazing and astronomy and space courses and programmes for the public – Star Safari and we write about space and astronomy with a New Zealand perspective.
At Star Safari, everyone 15 and younger is FREE because we believe that young people should not pay for inspiration.
