A Date with the Stars

Next week Jay and I are starting the volunteer program at Mauna Kea Observatories. Mauna Kea is one of the highest peaks in the world at approximately 13, 800 ft and is the tallest mountain in the world when measured from the ocean bottom. There is snow on the peak right now!

I've been interested in stars ever since my mum showed me how to find the constellation Orion when I was a kid. Now we will get a chance to see them up close through state of the art telescopes. Nebulae!
