You are also welcome to Camp Wednesday and Thursday Nights the for a small extra fee.
2015 is the 27th year that Stardate has been held, making it the longest running, and largest starparty in New Zealand.
 
The camp site in Tukituki Valley offers a wonderful horizon, away from cloud-attracting hills and city lights, as well as the normal campsite facilities.  Weather permitting, participants will be looking forward to lots of observing time. Many participants bring telescopes and for some, it’s their first telescopic view of the heavens.  There is ample opportunity to mix and mingle with other astronomy enthusiasts.  Some people here have 30-40 years experience; others are complete newcomers.
 
However, even if the weather is unsuitable for observing, there is also have a programme of talks, workshops and movies organized to complement skywatching.  Whatever the weather Stardate will be great astronomical experience. – a chance to ask questions, share ideas, and make or renew old friendships.
