The ancient stories hidden in the night sky are brought to life in this brand new Stardome produced planetarium show.

Narrated by Lucy Lawless and John Rhys-Davies, join us for an adventure as our stellar navigators explore the night sky and delve into the myths and legends behind the constellations visible in winter.

Not only will you be introduced to fantastic Greek and Māori characters, you will also learn what a constellation is, how they are used for astronomical purposes and where the names of planets come from! Following the show is a live, simulated night sky tour delivered by your Stardome presenter.

You’ll stop in at far away galaxies and nebulas and learn even more about the characters in the sky, all from the comfort of your reclined seat.

Our perspective of the sky is ever changing, which means we see different constellations and stars as we move through the seasons. For this reason, Winter Stories in the Sky is one of four shows in the Stories series. Each season, the show content changes based on what you can see in the sky around the night of your visit. You can keep coming back and meet new characters in the planetarium sky, then head out to the courtyard telescopes (weather permitting) and spot them for yourself in the real night sky.

With stunning 360-degree animations and a good dose of John Rhys-Davis humour, Stories in the Sky is suitable for both the young and the young-at-heart.

Please note: Winter Stories in the Sky is half-hour pre-recorded show, followed by a presenter-led special night sky tour. at-heart.
