Yes, another sunset photo! I must find another hobby soon, although the weather at sea level has been bad and was the type that made me wish I had a fireplace at home. The summit received quite a bit of snow last week and more was forecast for the weekend, but it didn't arrive and last week's fall is already melting. Unfortunately for us, the sky is full of mid- to high-level cloud which makes observing impossible although some of the submillimeter telescopes might stand a chance.
The panorama above includes the true summit of Mauna Kea to the left, Mauna Loa directly ahead with a snow-capped summit, although not easy to make out in the fading light, the usual tourists up to view the sunset (and collect the snow) and the distant Hualalai volcano whose summit can be made out through the mist in the distance.
On the other side of the road the telescopes come into view. To the left and in the distance is Hualalai volcano again, and in the valley (know to the local workforce as Submillimeter Valley), the CSO, JCMT and the SMA (the latter two cleverly camouflaged). On the ridge, Subaru, the twin Kecks and the NASA IRTF. Only Subaru and the CSO seem keen to start observing!
