Night with Moais

By: Stephane Guisard


Region: Australia and Pacific

Site: Easter Island - Chile

Date: September 2009

As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day its a bizarre experience to stand besides a giant Moais in a dark starry night of Easter Island, isolated in the Pacific Ocean. The two brightest stars of our night sky, Sirius and Canopus, shines besides a galactic dwarf neighbor, Large Magellanic Cloud, some 160,000 light years away. The Easter Island's large statues, or locally called Moais, remained from 13th to 15th century. Stephane Guisard -
