Maunakea Skies Talk
Third Friday of each month at 7:00 pm
Maunakea Skies begins with a traditional tour of the current night sky featuring stars, constellations and planets visible to the unaided eye in our stunning Hawai’i Island skies. Following this, a special guest from one of Mauna Kea’s world class observatories will present on a topic of their choosing. Recent topics have included “Mars: The Red Planet in Culture and Science”, “Observing Exoplanets with Small and Large Telescopes” and “IRTF: The Little Telescope That Could”. Following the presentation, audience members will be able to ask their own astronomy questions during a Q&A with the special guest presenter.
(Guests and topics are announced as soon as the information is available.)
