Puanga is the Taranaki Maori New Year. Puanga (Rigel) is witnessed rising from the East just before the sun to mark the start of a new year. The Maori New Year is also marked by Matariki, the Pleiades star cluster. Matariki rises just after Puanga, a little to the left on the horizon.
This video is created using Quicktime Player on my MacBook Pro to record a Stellarium script. The script automates the action of navigating the sky at a set date & time, speeding up and slowing down time and displaying informative text. Stellarium is able to display celestial information on screen based on various cultures, including Māori.
