Turn on your speakers and enjoy starry nights of Lake Tekapo in the South Island of New Zealand in this timelapse video. 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.
