This Meetup is cancelled

Shoot the Northern Solstice from Mt. Vic

  • Mount Victoria

    Mount Victoria, Wellington (map)

    -41.296066 174.794310

  • The Northern Solstice occurs when the sun is at its northernmost point in the sky - it marks the shortest day (and longest night) of the year. This is a very significant time in many of the world's cultures, one which has been observed since the dawn of our civilization.

    The Sun comes up at 7:47 am - I plan to be there before 7, to see the entire transition from night to day.

    Barring some kind of divine intervention, this even is cancelled - calling for severe gales and heavy rain Thu night into Friday morning. Hoping for the Southern Solstice to be a bit better weather-wise!

      Click above on 'Mount Victoria' (just below the name and date of this meetup) and a map will come up - you can drive up to the top (there is parking and it is a very short walk up to the main viewing platform).
