Dark Sky Project, formerly Earth & Sky, are world-leaders in astro-tourism experiences. Located in the heart of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, Takapō (Tekapo) is one of the quietest spots on the planet yet it has one of the busiest night skies in the universe.
Dark Sky Project offer a range of stargazing and observatory experiences, designed to connect manuhiri (visitors) to the night skies, igniting a lifelong passion for dark sky preservation and what lies above. Explore the pristine night skies in an evening tour at tehīwai – University of Canterbury Mt John Observatory or discover the night sky during the day with the world-first indoor multi-media astronomy experience.
