By Beckie Wright

Stardome loves kids and kids love space! That’s why Children’s Day is one of their favourite days of the year. To celebrate the little aliens in our lives, Stardome is hosting a public open day on national Children’s Day, March 3.


Come along for a day filled with family-friendly fun. There will be short planetarium shows running every 30 minutes, so children and adults alike can witness the wonders of the Universe, all from the comfort of a reclined seat (parents, think: entertained children!) They will have food, family fun crafts and activities, solar telescopes and more!


No need to book. Sunday 3 March, 10AM-4PM.
$2 per person.


A Synthesized Universe – Auckland Arts Festival
Stardome are pleased to be part of the 2019 Auckland Arts Festival with a fantastic show featuring mesmerising music and the mysteries of the cosmos. A unique collaboration between songwriter and planetarium, A Synthesized Universe is a show of total wonder and immersion – a 360-degree performance using awe-inspiring science and a surreal sense of storytelling to take audiences on an interstellar journey through the known universe.


Critically acclaimed musician Anthonie Tonnon performs while Stardome’s planetarium is operated in real time, using Stardome as a kind of visual instrument to evoke the vastness of the cosmos. Alongside custom animations by Andrew Charlton, Tonnon performs on a storied, 1968 electric guitar and a new, Wellington-designed synthesizer-sampler, which also controls the lights, making this a multi-sensory experience.


Following sold-out seasons at Otago Museum, Tonnon brings his captivating, buzz-worthy show to Auckland and Stardome for the very first time. This project is a collaboration between Anthonie Tonnon and the digital creative team at Otago Museum’s Perpetual Guardian Planetarium.
