About the event
Enjoy the night from the dark skies of Wai-iti Dark Sky Park. The Milky Way will span the night sky, with no Moon to wash out the sky. You'll probably be able to get a look at Saturn, and stay late, and you'll be able to see Jupiter and the Galilean Moons...
Telescopes will be on-site for you to observe and astronomers will explain what you are seeing.
If cloudy, event will be postponed to Saturday; if Saturday is cloudy also, the event will be cancelled.
DRESS WARM! Note that toilet facilities on site are limited to unlit longdrops, so plan your evening accordingly.
Assuming the event is held under COVID-19 Orange conditions, the event can proceed without limits (we are imposing a practical limit of 100 to limit traffic and queueing for telescopes). Mask wearing is recommended but not required. The hosts will be wearing masks as required under COVID requirements, unless they have an exemption.
