Suggest planning the date and time of your trip (if you have the luxury). It’s very nice here
The Mauna Kea Observatory is also the largest resource in the entire area. The entire observatory can see long-distance facilities. You can find some good things when you visit here. The interior of the observatory has not been entered. I don’t know how the celestial bodies are introduced here. It's complicated.
The observatory is located on the Big Island, in a relatively high place. The scenery is particularly good when passing by a car, and the good weather in those few days also adds points to the scenic spots. It belongs to places with fewer people.
One of the most worth visiting places in the Big Island. If you can feel the shock brought by the earth when you go to the Volcano Park, then you can feel the shock brought by the universe here! When night falls, the sky is full of stars, let us city people who don't know what the starry sky is intoxicated, and hope we can still have the opportunity to witness this beautiful moment!
It took 2 hours to drive up the mountain from Hilton, and the scenery along the way was amazing. Experienced the wonderful feeling from summer to winter, the mountain is very cold, you have to bring winter clothes. The visitor center is not big, and there is free hot water at the door, so you can make a cup of noodles or coffee to warm your hands. After dark, the stars are a little bit more beautiful. It is the most beautiful starry sky I have ever seen. Unfortunately, it is difficult for ordinary cameras to take pictures, so I can only keep it in my mind forever!
