Tekapo Night Sky

This is the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tekapo, New Zealand.

 

Gazing upwards towards the views Tekapo has to offer of an evening serves as a vivid reminder to precisely how small each and every one of us is. Walking among the glacially carved valleys around his area serves only to reenforce this fact.

 

The town may only be small, but getting out among the mountains in this place is an experience you will not soon forget.

 

Due to it's crystal clear night skies, Tekapo is home to a number of large telescopes and various other astronomical observation equipment. It's easy to see why.
