TOPS 2000 - Session 50 & 51 Description
We will leave the facilities at Kalani Honua very early in the morning (4:15am) to arrive by bus at Cape Kumukahi at sunrise (which is at 5:42 Local time - HST). We will observe any possible astronomical alignments at the site during the sunrise, and visit the heiau platform. This is a wonderful opportunity for our Pacific Island teachers and local to share some cultural astronomy practices with the group. After a picnic breakfast, the group will divide into teams and will conduct a brief archaeological survey of the site using theodolites and compasesses.
Location - Cape Kumukahi
