Maunakea Skies Talk

Third Friday of each month at 7:00 pm

Show format 

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 Maunakea'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.” After the presentation, audience members will be able to ask their own astronomy questions during a Q&A with the special guest presenter.
