We are

Haritina Mogosanu and Samuel Leske,

We believe that access to the night sky should be affordable and open to anyone. We are made of stardust, this is probably the most significant connexion we have to each other and with the Universe.

Our place is where everyone is welcome to appreciate the night sky. You don’t have to know anything about the night sky, all you need is a curiosity to look up.


We believe that is really important for kids to appreciate the night sky and we want to help them be aware of what is possible and what their future might hold. When you realise we are all made from stars, you also realise anything is possible.

Therefore, for Star Safari, kids 12 and under are free.

We love

astronomy and



We teach Space and Astronomy courses

If you are interested to learn about astronomy, telescopes and space, we can help.

We offer telescope advice

If you get stuck in choosing a telescope or you need an opinion, we can help.


Every weekend we go stargazing in the dark-skied Wairarapa. Join us and discover the night sky we love.

We also organise public talks, lectures, events and education programmes. Our latest project was designing and launching New Zealand’s first Mars permanent exhibition at Stonehenge Aotearoa.

Online astronomy

We run an online astronomy programme called SLOOH. Explore the Universe in style with us, as an armchair astronomer!

Nothing. Nothing more mysterious or more beautiful than the stars in the sky.
