Nā te pō, ko te ao, ko te ao mārama

From the darkest depths of the night we become enlightened

At Dark Sky Project, formerly Earth & Sky, we connect manuhiri (visitors) to our night skies, igniting a lifelong passion for dark sky preservation and what lies above. 

We're proud to be regarded as leaders in astro-tourism and stargazing experiences.
