Stonehenge Aotearoa

@stonehenge.aotearoa @Jun Zhou @stonehenge.aotearoa @Jun Zhou

Stonehenge Aotearoa is New Zealand’s only open air hands-on astronomical observatory. Situated in the Wairarapa countryside close to Carterton, just over an hour from Wellington, Stonehenge Aotearoa is built on the same scale as Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain in England. Stonehenge Aotearoa is a modern observatory that connects people with their sky and the cycles of nature: solstices, equinoxes, Matariki observances and is the perfect stargazing tool at night.

Because the observatory was created to incorporate ancient Egyptian, Babylonian and Indus Valley astronomy, Polynesian navigation, and Celtic and Maori starlore it is also an archaeoastronomy site.
