Mauna Kea Keck Telescopes

Over­look­ing the Keck Twin Tele­scopes the Sub­aru and the ITF tele­scopes on Mau­na Kea.

Tak­en dur­ing sun­set from atop of the sum­mit ridge of Mau­na Kea at near­ly 14 000 feet above sea lev­el. While the sun­set it self was not par­tic­u­lar­ly spec­tac­u­lar on this day the real rea­son to see Mau­na Kea is for the tele­scopes and the absolute­ly sur­re­al night sky after dark.

The sum­mit of Haleakala on Maui is vis­i­ble in the pho­to rough­ly 100km’s distant.
