Starry sky of Hawaii as seen from the Haleakala Crater rim; a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui. The extraterrestrial-looking plant in the foreground is a rare Haleakala Silversword, a plant of sunflower family which is only found on the island of Maui at an elevation of 2,100 to 3,000 m of the Haleakala environment. A younger silversword is also visible little further from the photographer. Wally Pacholka/
