Mauna Kea Star Trails

February 03, 2014

Near the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii the skies open up at night to reveal a star scape we simple don't have an opportunity to see elsewhere due to the minimal light pollution and clear air.

During the star gazing presentation on 2nd February we were extremely fortunate in witnessing the International Space Station cross directly above us for a very brief period of time. Some of the photos below show the Space Station as a straight line in a 30 second exposure, which will give you an idea of how fast it was travelling.
