The Milky Way and the zodiacal light appear above Lake Tekapo in the South Island of New Zealand. Mount John University Observatory, New Zealand's premier astronomical observatory, is situated near the lake and with support of New Zealand government the starry sky of the lake is considered site for UNESCO Starlight Reserve initiative; a new approach to preserve the dark sites as a World Heritage. See this view in an enchanting timelapse video. To see a day-time panoramic view of the lake click the star-pattern icon above the image. Alex Cherney/
