The Telescopes of Mauna Kea Hawaii

“The wonder is not that the field of stars is so vast, but that man has measured it”

Anatole France, “The Gardens of Epicurus”, 1894.

I found this video today (via The Verge) and I had to include here because it is so beautiful, it’s staggering.

As I’ve said before, visiting these telescopes is on my big list of ambitions. Of course it may take a back seat for a while given the upcoming trip to South America, but I hope that I may be able to see a similar site in Chile.
