Mauna Kea Observatory's

Now on our last night my husband, me and a friend went to Mauna Kea Observatory's. 13,796 ft, the highest point on Hawaii. One of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen, without being in a air plane. We were above the clouds and it was cold. But the view was breath taking.:))
Some information I looked up, Hawaii is Earth's connecting point to the rest of the Universe. The summit of Mauna Kea on the Island of Hawaii hosts the world's largest astronomical observatory, with telescopes operated by astronomers from eleven countries. The combined light-gathering power of the telescopes on Mauna Kea is fifteen times greater than that of the Palomar telescope in California -- for many years the world's largest -- and sixty times greater than that of the Hubble Space Telescope.
