100 Happy Days 53/100, Stargazing

Despite the cloudy day Tekapo put on for us yesterday, the night was clear. Tekapo has a light pollution plan in place, all the streetlights are less than a meter off the ground and point downwards. The result is an absolute sea of stars above. Millions more than you see in the city. There’s an observatory not too far from Tekapo too. 

Zombie and I spent a while outside looking at the stars last night. It wasn’t as spectacular as the photo below, but it was beautiful to gaze at.
