    See the solar system from the Southern Hemisphere

    From time to time, amateur astronomers may have set their telescope up in the backyard and caught a glimpse of the galaxy. However, they may have had trouble spotting the rings of Saturn, or even Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system. If this is the case, these individuals can certainly see these planets during their visit to Auckland when they stop at the Stardome Observatory Planetarium.

    For many years now, Kiwis with an interest in stargazing have flocked to the Stardome to take advantage of the various educational opportunities available to them.

    One of the Stardome's main attractions is the Edith Winstone Blackwell Zeiss Telescope, which the public is more than welcome to use to take a peek at the stars. In addition to planets, those who look through the telescope's eye piece can see star clusters like the Jewel Box.

    If travelers plan to take a detour during their road trip in New Zealand to visit the Stardome, they should know that a Zeiss viewing is only possible on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Space is also limited, so they will want to reserve a spot ahead of time.
