New Show Winter Stories in the Sky planetarium show

Join Lucy Lawless and John Rhys-Davies in a stellar adventure as they navigate through the night sky and delve into the myths and legends behind the constellations visible in winter. Not only will you be introduced to fantastic Greek and Māori characters, you will also learn what a constellation is, how they are used for astronomical purposes and where the names of planets come from!

Our perspective of the sky is ever changing, which means we see different constellations and stars as we move through the seasons. For this reason, Winter Stories in the Sky is one of four shows in the Stories series. Each season, the show content changes based on what you can see in the sky around the night of your visit. You can keep coming back and meet new characters in the planetarium sky, then head out to the courtyard telescopes (weather permitting) and spot them for yourself in the real night sky.

With stunning 360-degree animations and a good dose of John Rhys-Davis humour, Stories in the Sky is suitable for both the young and the young-at-heart.
