The Science of Rocks from Space! 

Ever wonder about meteorites? Come join us at Mauna Kea’s Visitor Information Station as we learn about the study of meteoritic from Dr. Gary Fujihara. Learn about the different kinds of meteorites, what they made of and how we can learn more about outer space from space rocks!

On the first Saturday of each month, the Visitor Information Station (VIS) hosts The Universe Tonight, a special presentation on the current research and discoveries occurring on Mauna Kea. The presentation begins at 6:00 PM and is followed by the regular evening stargazing program at the VIS.

The Universe Tonight typically features an astronomer from one of the observatories on Mauna Kea giving a presentation on recent observations and discoveries from their telescope. Observatories are on a rotating schedule. If you would like to know about upcoming presentations, please call the VIS at (808) 961-2180 during operational hours.
