What You Will See

Astronomy Adventures (NZ) offers you an unforgettable visual adventure in the night sky. Based at Baylys Beach, Northland, New Zealand, we offer you the opportunity to view the stars through a large computerised telescope. See* craters on the Moon, the satellites of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the phases of Venus, as well as countless star clusters, globular clusters, and galaxies. Marvel at the Milky Way, our very own Galaxy. All viewed from the superbly dark skies of our Northland location, away from both light and air pollution.

[ * Weather permitting. Objects vary according to the time of year and of month.]
