The Matariki Cluster. by RH

Happy Matariki to you all!

Matariki is the Maori name for the star cluster known as the Pleiades, which appears over the New Zealand skies in June this year and marks the start of the Maori New Year. This star cluster is one of the most significant celebrations on the Maori calendar.  Matariki represents a time for change, reflection, growth and celebration.
