Bringing the sun to a vacant retail space in the middle of Puaka Matariki and a Dunedin winter artist Trudy Lane invites you to come stare at Te Rā, the sun – safely! A large projection of the sun from solar telescopes in Dunedin, Dresden, and outer space is beaming in to warm up your winter. Check the Sunroom website for times of public discussions on astrophysics, energy, ecologies, and cosmologies– everyone is welcome.
