New Zealand: Carter Observatory in Wellington

On Tuesday I got three postcards: one from New Zealand, one from South Korea and my first card from Norfolk Island.

The card from New Zealand shows the Carter Observatory in Wellington. The Carter Observatory was built between 1937 and 1941. It was a base for the astronomical research in New Zealand and became the country's National Observatory in 1977. Today it is used by the Wellington Museum Trust to educate the public about the space.

With nice stamps:
Performing Arts (from set of six) (issued 14-01-1998)
Southern Lights (from set of six) (issued 08-02-2017)

Thank You very much Sharon!
