On top of Mauna Kea Volcano, Big Island of Hawai’I, are located the Mauna Kea Observatories, with thirteen telescopes. The site’s 4205 m elevation, and lack of light pollution make it one of the most ideal locations for astronomical observations. Start of construction of the new Thirty Meter Telescope was delayed in July due to protests by Native Hawaiians who consider the mountain to be one of their most sacred sites. Image data for the perspective view was acquired April 23, 2019, and is located at 19.8 degrees north, 155.5 degrees west.
