Daily Travel Photo – Mauna Kea, Hawaii

Mauna Kea Summit Panorama

Mauna Kea Summit Panorama

You will definitely want to click to see the larger sized version of the photo. This is a panoramic photo I took from the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii. Mauna Kea is the highest point in the Pacific and the home to the world’s largest telescopes. In the distance in the center you can see the 10 meter Keck 1 & 2 telescopes and to the left is the Japanese Subaru Telescope. You will also notice that the peak is well above the cloud line, which is what makes it such a great place for astronomy.
