Timelapse of the observatories atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The summit is at an altitude of nearly 14,000 ft and is the premiere site for astronomy in the Northern Hemisphere. Some of my favorite still images of Mauna Kea can be found at sgphotos.com/photostories/maunakea.

More information (i.e. "What's up with the lasers?" "What gear did you use?") can be viewed at sgphotos.com/portfolio/timelapse/makingmaunakeaheavens/. More of my timelapse work can be found here and at sgphotos.com/portfolio/timelapse. Please notify me prior to featuring my work.

Music: "All is Violent, All is Bright" by God is an Astronaut.

Standard disclaimer: Mauna Kea contains delicate ecosystems and is sacred to the Hawaiian people. If you go there, please be sensitive to the cultural role of the mountain and obey the rules contained at http://www.ifa.hawaii.edu/info/vis/vi.... Permits are required for large groups or commercial photography, and more information can be found at the link. And above all, please be safe—accidents are much more likely when you combine high altitude, sleep deprivation, cold, snow/ice, and darkness!
