Caption: Mauna Kea telescopes and Milky Way. Silhouetted against a sunset glow are the Subaru Telescope (far left), the Keck I and II telescopes (centre left and centre), and NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility (far right). These telescopes are located on the summit of the Mauna Kea volcano, on the Pacific island of Hawaii, USA. The starry band of the Milky Way and its scattered nebulae (dark areas) dominates the night sky.
