This is a three-day event for people interested in planetary astronomy and viewing the night sky. It caters for beginners through to experienced astronomers with a range of talks, workshops and observing sessions. At this time Mars will be at its closest to the Earth, Saturn is at maximum tilt displaying its magnificent ring system at its best, and Jupiter will be in our evening sky.

The Moon will be at first quarter - one of the best times to observe its alien landscape of mountains and craters. In fact, we hope over the weekend to observe every planet in the Solar System including Ceres and Pluto. Plus during the day we will have solar observing.

"Tour of the Planets" will be held at the grounds and theatre at Stonehenge Aotearoa. The site provides spectacular scenery and near perfect observing conditions.

If you are interested in attending please contact Kay Leather: Hellfa@xtra.co.nz with Planets in the subject line or phone 06 377 1600.
