Mauna Kea

Standing before the cosmos. When you're under the night sky like this, with the portion of the Milky Way right before you're very eyes, Mars rising above the fiery Kilauea, and Alpha Cent shining brightly on the far right, this is the best part of my Hawaii experience! Scorpius is somehow outshined by the Milky Way but Antares is still visible, apart from hundreds of other visible stars! I was able to see Saturn with its rings from a huge reflector, and its beauty is just awesome! Jupiter too is beautiful but Saturn is just splendid! From another telescope, an astronomer showed us M13, one of the many Messier objects out there. The feeling is so surreal! Makes me feel that I am just a speck of dust in the vastness of space. Yet I am born out of stardusts. And I am one with the Universe! Thankful and blessed. ❤ The pic is taken at Mauna Kea by our tour guide. It's freezing cold there though. We're not even at the summit and it's 3 degrees cold! #Stars #MilkyWay #MaunaKea #SkyInHawaii #HawaiiAtNight #TravelStories #milkyway #skyinhawaii #hawaiiatnight #stars #maunakea #travelstories

A homing pigeon must love its home otherwise she will not wish to return to it- Meir Shalev. * Around Mauna Kea is home to my first very long run. A couple of inspiring #ultramarathon guys let me join their 42 mile run. And then again the next time and many times in between. Forever this little spot in the middle of the Pacific Ocean will be home of my first taste of #ultrarunning . As next month entry into @hurthawaii HURT100 opens all over again, I find myself returning “home” more often. Today after school in Hilo I landed here, again...because I love home. #ultramarathon #ultrarunning
