View star clusters, nebulae and galaxies LIVE from the imaging telescopes at the Maunakea Visitor Center, all from the comfort of 'Imiloa's Planetarium! Join us on a journey to explore the stars and celestial objects from the 9,000 foot-level in real time!
Each month's program will focus on celestial objects seen in that season's sky. For instance, in the winter skies in Hawai'i we will look at the Orion Nebula, Pleiades, and put them in contexts with Hawaiian traditions.
A VIS staff member will orient the program’s participants to the night’s sky via a live feed, as well as introduce the instruments and techniques used to view a deep space object. In turn, the 'Imiloa planetarium operator will then take the audience to those objects for a more in-depth look.
General admission cost is $10; $8 for UHH/HawCC Students, Kupuna, Individual, Dual, and Family Members; $6 for Patron Members; Free for Silver, Gold, and Corporate Members. Pre-purchase tickets at the 'Imiloa front desk or by phone at (808) 932-8901.
Our live stargazing program in partnership with the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy Visitor Information Station (VIS) is on selected Friday evenings at 7:00 pm. For the months of May, June, and July Stargazing Live will be held at due to the late setting sun.
