Fodor's Review

If you are keen on astronomy but don't have time to go all the way to the summit, visit Keck Observatory headquarters right in Waimea, with its educational exhibits and informed staff. You can see models and images taken from the twin 10-meter Keck telescopes on Mauna Kea and learn about the latest discoveries.
