Star ther­apy


There’s noth­ing like star -gaz­ing for con­tem­plat­ing your place in the world (or putting your prob­lems in per­spec­tive). Take a closer look at the plan­ets and phe­nom­ena in our so­lar sys­tem, and be­yond, thanks to the high-pow­ered tele­scopes at Auck­land’s Star­dome Ob­ser­va­tory and Plan­e­tar­ium, Welling­ton’s Carter Ob­ser­va­tory or atop Tekapo’s Mt John. This year so­lar ac­tiv­ity is par­tic­u­larly strong, so if you’re away from the city, look out for the blaz­ing beauty of the aurora aus­tralis (South­ern Lights). Or just head out­side away from ar­ti­fi­cial lights, spread a blan­ket to lie down on, breathe out and let your mind roam.
