Canopus at Center

"The second brightest star in our night sky, Canopus, nicely centered with the jetty at Lake Rotoiti. Canopus, also known as Alpha Carinae and is in the Carina constellation. It's quite far away too, a mere 313 light-years."

Lake Rotoiti, previously also known as Lake Arthur, is a lake in the Tasman Region of New Zealand. It is a substantial mountain lake within the borders of Nelson Lakes National Park. (Source: Wikipedia)
