Light meters


“A number of Wairarapa organisations have generously sponsored our network of light meters across the Wairarapa District.  Six meters are up and running, with more to come in the near future. 

These meters take continuous measurements of the darkness of the Wairarapa sky.  This monitoring means we can demonstrate the darkness of our skies, and will be aware of any change in light pollution that might threaten sky darkness.  The meters also measure cloud at night, providing good information on Wairarapa’s stargazing weather.”
