Mauna Kea, Hawai’i aka Big island
Around the Summit of Mauna Kea, at about 4,150 meters (13,615 feet). The Observatories oblivious to the Mountain that carries them. With the Focus FAR, FAR, FAR AWAY. Looking for Nebulas, Galaxies, Stars, Planets… for the beginning of Time. I do not sense I am welcomed here. Yet, I stand near the Summit that means so much to Hawaiians. And I do not see the splendor of their Sacred Place. Why? The Observatories bring industrial look and feel that suppresses the Heartbeat of the Mountain’s Crown.
