Directly from the astronomical observatory of Mauna Kea, Hawaii


Due to its isolated location, altitude and proximity to the equator, Mauna Kea is considered the best site in the northern hemisphere of the Earth for astronomical observation . An extremely creative time-lapse to the sound of starry vaults and laser beams, shot right here!

Mauna Kea is a very active volcano of 4.205m in height, and one of the highest mountains of the United States.

In the Hawaiian language, the name “Mauna Kea” means “white mountain”, and refers to the fact that the peaks of the mountain appear covered with snow and ice and the tourists can go skiing right after a swim at the beach.

On its summit at an altitude between 4,100 and 4,200 meters, is in fact the observatory on Mauna Kea, with many telescopes, including some of the largest in the world. (Source: Wikipedia)
