Surges Of Up To 100 Meteors Per Hour Will Light Up The Hawaii Skies During The 2020 Lyrid Meteor This April
There is no doubt about it: the Hawaiian Islands are home to some of the world’s most breathtaking natural beauty, but what if I told you that the Aloha State is just as magnificent after the sun has slipped beyond the horizon? From the Milky Way as seen from the summit of Hawaii’s tallest mountains — Mauna Kea and Mount Haleakala — to next month’s Lyrid meteor shower, we are obsessed with the night sky above the Hawaiian Islands.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

While the night sky above Hawaii is sure to be stunning during this epic meteor shower, the islands are also one of the best places for stargazing in the world thanks to low light pollution and unobstructed views from the summits of our tallest mountains. Where is your favorite place to stargaze in Hawaii?
