The Stars of Matariki

There are over 500 stars in the Matariki cluster – but only a handful are visible without using a telescope.

Each of the stars has their unique characteristics that we acknowledge and honour.

Meet the stars below!

Thank you to Te Papa, Te Ara and the book 'Living By the Star by Rangi Mātāmua for helping to provide this information.
