For astronomers, Monaroa Observatory is definitely worth a visit, not only for the very beautiful views, but also for the knowledge of the outer space, very interesting and engaging
The Mauna Loa Observatory is a place with very few people. The way up is a bit steep, but the scenery is really good. According to our local guide, it will be more beautiful if you come at night
The most beautiful starry sky I have seen before is the hot spring in Hailuogou. It is described that the stars are like diamonds hanging on the black velvet, but the real starry sky is full of stars in MAUNA KEA SUMMIT. I feel that the night sky has been worn through. Can't stop them. At night in Shanghai, only when the weather conditions are very good, there are so few stars shining in the sky at night. In fact, the stars are always there, but they are not visible in the night sky of Shanghai. The lights of the city are too bright, repelling the beautiful starry sky.
worth! You must rent a Jeep four-wheel drive to go up the mountain. The road from the starry sky distribution center to the observatory top is like going up to the blue sky and soaring into the sky. The surrounding ground looks like the moon, driving the entire section of the rocky road on this dangerous road, which is very narrow, and the two cars face each other cautiously. When I cross the clouds in the middle, I can't see anything. The visibility is too low and I can only climb up carefully. Super driving sense! At the observatory, the air is thin, and the wind is cold and strong. You can't run fast at the highest altitude. The world's largest astronomical telescope is like being in outer space, an unforgettable experience! But some of the summit photos were stolen in another phone!
Mauna Loa Observatory is a very good place. Of course, in Hawaii with such a good environment, as long as it doesn't rain, as long as it is sunny, you can definitely see it.
