    The Canterbury Astronomical Society (CAS) hosts public Open Nights during the winter months (April to September). Open Nights run from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on designated Friday nights, weather permitting. Event Calendar | Canterbury Astronomical Society

    Members of the public are invited to join us and have a look through professional quality telescopes, each of which is operated by a member of the society. These members are happy to answer your questions about the objects you are viewing.

    Individuals and small groups of fewer than 10 people are welcome to visit on any Public Night. Entry is NOT available on the gate, but tickets can per pre-purachsed online at discount rates via Eventbright, using the button below

    Organised groups of 10 to 35 people are required to book their visit to the Observatory. When booking, please download and complete the booking form, and email it to bookings@cas.org.nz. Group tickets will be allocated manually

    We regret that bookings for groups larger than 35 people cannot be accepted due to observatory site restrictions. Groups larger than this may wish to consider booking multiple sessions of up to 35 people each.

    If the sky conditions are too poor for viewing, a notice will be placed on the main page of this website and on our FaceBook page by 6:45 p.m. Please check one of those sites before heading out to the observatory.

    For specific open night queries, please email bookings@cas.org.nz

    Or or more general information about our open nights and outreach, including costs and what you bring with you for your visit, please refer to outreach | Canterbury Astronomical Society
