Site: Lake Tekapo - New Zealand

Allow this virtual reality flash animation loads and then find your self under starry sky at the shore of Lake Tekapo in New Zealand. The Milky Way and the zodiacal light appear over the lake. 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 a considered site for UNESCO Starlight Reserve initiative; a new approach to preserve the dark sites as a World Heritage.
