Saturn on show

Central Leader - - News -

Saturn is in op­ti­mal po­si­tion for evening view­ing over Auck­land’s skies.

The ringed planet was one of the first ob­jects ob­served by Galileo, when he pointed a tele­scope at the skies 400 years ago. To cel­e­brate the tele­scope’s an­niver­sary and Galileo’s dis­cov­er­ies, Star­dome Ob­ser­va­tory is run­ning a new plan­e­tar­ium show called Two Small Pieces of Glass.

It runs Tues­days to Sun­days at 9pm un­til the end of May in ad­di­tion to the Sky Tonight show at 8pm.

Adults are $16 and chil­dren $8. Call Jill Jes­sop on 021-442-884 for more in­for­ma­tion.
