Mauna Kea Sunset

By: Fred Espenak

 

Region: Americas

Site: Mauna Kea-Hawaii - USA

 

Sunset on Mauna Kea Observatory, located near the 4205m summit of Mauna Kea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. Recognized as one of the world's premier astronomical research facilities, MKO is actually an international collection of independent observatories. Hawaii's isolation in the mid-Pacific Ocean and the high elevation of Mauna Kea makes it one of the best locations on Earth for ground-based astronomy. The heavens are studies in the submillimeter, infrared and optical wavelengths with telescopes designed specifically for each of these spectral regions. Fred Espenak/Mreclipse.com
