Take Your Family Stargazing On Mauna Kea, Hawaii

Hawaii is known for its splendid beaches, lush forests, welcoming residents, and beautiful weather. However, one of the Big Island of Hawaii’s best attractions asks you to look up into the sky and beyond our planet. We are talking about stargazing near the Mauna Kea Observatories in Hawaii. It’s one of the best attractions and outstanding vacation rentals through ResorticaHawaii are not far away from the observatories. Here is what you should know about the Mauna Kea Observatories before you bring your family to stargazing on the Big Island of Hawaii.

What Are The Mauna Kea Observatories?

The Mauna Kea Observatories are a group of astronomical research facilities with large telescopes. They are located in an area that is perfect for viewing space because of the lack of light pollution, elevation, low humidity, and dark skies. Below the summit is also the Mauna Kea Visitor Information Station.

Where Are The Mauna Kea Observatories Located? 

It’s on the summit of the Mauna Kea Access Road in Hilo.

The Mauna Kea Visitor Information Station is also located up at 9,200 feet along the Mauna Kea Access Road in Hilo.

Stargazing In Hawaii

The Mauna Kea Visitor Information Station offers nightly stargazing opportunities. The station is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., but camping, sleeping, and starting fires are prohibited. The staff will answer questions about Maunakea and astronomy if you are there during the day. Check out the once-a-month free event if you want to see the stars and planets through the telescopes. Be aware that space is limited, so you must register before your visit.
