Auckland’s Tūpuna Maunga Authority has granted a long term lease to 2034 to the Stardome Observatory and Planetarium at Maungakiekie / One Tree Hill.

Chair Paul Majurey says Stardome supports the maunga as an iconic taonga and important destination for Aucklanders and tourists alike.

He says Stardome already has some great programmes around Matariki, and there’s potential to further explore mātauranga Māori in relation to the stars and planets, through stories of early navigation through to maramataka or Māori understanding of the lunar phases and their many applications in Māori life.

During June Stardome screens Matariki Dawn, a planetarium show which explains how to find Matariki and includes animated Māori stories connected to astronomy.

Maungakiekie is the location of one of the largest Māori pā in pre-European times.
