2005 Poster Calendar

"Mauna Kea Star Trails," by IfA graduate student Wei-Hao Wang, is featured on our 2005 poster calendar. The image is a time-lapse photo of the summit of Mauna Kea taken in the morning twilight and shows the Subaru Telescope, the twin Keck telescopes, and the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility. The poster calendar has been sent to all Hawaii public and private schools. Members of the Friends of Hawaii Astronomy, the education and outreach support group affiliated with the IfA, and donors will also receive a calendar when they sign up or renew their support in 2005. Mauna Kea, Hawaii's highest peak, is the best place in the world for optical, infrared, and submillimeter astronomical observatories.
