Timelapse Milky Way

This stellar piece of work, Plains Milky Way created by Randy Halverson – Dakotalapse, provides an excellent view of our galaxy as seen from here on Earth.

Gazing up at the sky can prove truly inspirational under the right conditions. On most parts of the Big Island, here in Hawaii, a combination of factors including low levels of light pollution and consistent ocean winds usually provide us with spectacular star gazing opportunities. Some of the best views can be had during night trips to the summit of Mauna Kea.
