Mauna Kea Stretched Art Prints

Mauna Kea Stretched Art Prints Hawaii Island is home to one of the most renowned astronomical sites on the planet. Perched high atop Mauna Kea, rising 13,796 feet above sea level, 13 telescopes representing 11 countries are watching the heavens and making discoveries beyond our imaginations. Here, on the tallest sea mountain in the world, experts and visitors are treated to a show few have experienced. At this elevation, and because of the clear air and minimal light pollution, the stars can light the sky like glitter. The sunsets above the clouds can also be spectacular. Guided stargazing tours offer transportation, warm parkas, dinner, access to the mountain summit, detailed narratives about the history and cultural significance of Mauna Kea as well as night viewing. For those who want to venture up on their own, a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended, however the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy Visitor Information Station at the 9,300-foot level is accessible via two-wheel drive vehicles. Anyone wishing to venture above this point must have a four-wheel drive. The visitors’ center is open daily, and offers summit tours and public stargazing. The high altitude may be a health hazard for some and can produce serious life-threatening conditions. Be sure to familiarize yourself with safety precautions before traveling upslope Mauna Kea. Standing 4,205m above sea level, its peak is the highest point in the state of Hawaii. With its high altitude, dry environment, and stable airflow, Mauna Kea's summit is one of the best sites in the world for astronomical observation.
