Stargazers try to spot the Matariki constellation among clouds from the Portobello jetty on Saturday morning during a Puaka Matariki Festival Journey to the Stars bus trip organised by the Otago Museum, Otago Heritage Bus Society, Dunedin Astronomical Society and Otakou Runaka.

Matariki (Pleiades) was visible for a few moments between clouds, while the brighter Puaka (Rigel) was clearly seen for a long period.
