The Spring Equinox Sunrise on Mauna Kea


The top of Mauna Kea on Hawai’I island beckons to astronomers, adventurers, and seekers of many kinds. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa visited the summit recently with a group whose goal was to see the sunrise of the Spring Equinox on the summit of Mauna Kea.  The Mamalahoa Chapter of the Royal Order of Kamehameha leads commemorations to the mountain for the solstices and equinoxes.  Mahalo nui to Paul Neves, Kaliko Kanaele, Kealoha Pisciotta and Ku Ching for their many contributions to this continuing story.
