From the darkest depths of the night we become enlightened

At Dark Sky Project, formerly Earth & Sky, we connect manuhiri (visitors) to our night skies, igniting a lifelong passion for dark sky preservation and what lies above. 

We're proud to be regarded as leaders in astro-tourism and stargazing experiences.

To create a brighter, more energy efficient future where we put control in our customers' hands.
