Haleakala Sunset-Summer Solstice

Aloha,

I recently went star gazing up on Haleakala summit this past June 21st (Summer Solstice).  The drive up was awesome with so many spectacular view options it seemed like I was stopping every mile or so.  If you want to see the vastness of our universe this is a must do, and AMAZING is an understatement for the experience.  We bundled up in our sleeping bags (very cold) and just laid there watching the satellites cross by, occasional shooting stars, and all the wonder going on.  As the winds were very brisk that night I was unable to shoot any star images, but you can bet I will be going back soon.  Enjoy and Aloha-

John
