Moon stuff…

A silver metallic Moon has shown up at my bedroom's window. Its hidden through a veil of grey thin clouds, which seem to be pressing against the jagged mountain line in straight horizontal banding. She, who used to be a huge and round disk of bright light, is now smudged in all directions, with charcoal of darkness.

Keen to learn about all these and more?

We go stargazing in the Wairarapa every Friday and Saturday.

If you cannot make it to Wairarapa or New Zealand, you can still learn astronomy online with us with SLOOH. 

Love this photo?

A silver metallic Moon has shown up at my bedroom’s window.

Its hidden through a veil of grey thin clouds, which seem to be pressing against the jagged mountain line in straight horizontal banding. She, who used to be a huge and round disk of bright light, is now smudged in all directions, with charcoal of darkness.

It feels so surreal to watch it slowly rising, as I’m hiding behind the leaves of the ancient Pohutukawa tree that surrounds the house like a good spell, and warmly tucked inside the warm bedsheets. The moonshine that breathes in union with the waters of the harbour… Delicate and rhythmic, the tiny light spikes beam onto the edge of the sea, barely touching it, as if pinging it to see if it’s still alive. I’m bewildered by their soft rise and fall, while out on the windows the oval leaves are restlessly moving across the firmament, fingers caressing the skin of the night, they cast a sharp-edged black frame to this misty and imprecise Moon painting.

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.
