As seen on the National Geographic News a stone chapel under a myriad of stars and the brightest planets highlight this view from Lake Tekapo Starlight Reserve on New Zealand's South Island. The two brilliant starlike objects, planets Jupiter (far left) and Venus, shine like beacons next to the famed Orion, the hunter constellation in one of the most unpolluted skies found on the globe. In 2009 UNESCO designated Lake Tekapo as the world's first internationally recognized dark-sky conservation park. Alex Cherney,
