Event description

Description

Saturday 19 January

Join the team from Stardome Observatory & Planetarium right here at the Auckland Botanic Gardens and learn about our very own star, the Sun:

• Construct your very own sundial to tell the time of day by observing sunlight shadows
• Experiment with light to discover the invisible power of the Sun
• Learn about how we view the Sun differently through the day as well as through the year
• Find out answers to your astronomical questions!

Suitable for children aged 12+, accompanied by a parent.

Please bring your ticket on the day (printed or on your phone).

Notes on booking:

Book your ticket for the time-slot you'd like to attend on Saturday 19 January - the hour-long session is repated hourly at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm.

Please book for the number of children attending (all children to be accompanied by an adult).

Example: your child Susan and her friend Moana would like to attend, and Bob (Susan's dad) will accompany them. This means you'll need to book two tickets under Bob's name and email address.
