Takapō (Tekapo) and the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve is home to some of the world’s darkest skies. It may be one of the quietest spots on the planet, yet it has one of the busiest skies in the universe. From here, at Te Tahitaha o Te Raki (the earth’s edge) we search the sky for understanding of creation, knowledge of space, and we try to make sense of these strands of light.
Simply looking up at the night sky has a powerful effect on humankind. For millennia it has created a sense of awe and wonder and prompted spiritual and technological curiosity and discovery.
