Mauna Kea Observatories viewed from the North - 2

In the center are the open domes of the W.M. Keck Observatory. To the right is the Subaru Telescope. Some of the antenna pads for the submillimeter array can be seen to the right of the Subaru Telescope. These concrete pads have been painted brown to help reduce their impact. In the distance, at the left is the almost perfectly formed cinder cone Pu'u Hau Kea, and to its right is Lake Waiau, at an altitude of 13,020 feet. It has an area of about 40 acres.
