Caption: Mauna Kea Observatories. Aerial view of astronomical observatories near the summit of Mauna Kea on Hawaii, USA. The observatories in the lower frame are (from bottom to top): Subaru; Keck I & II (twin white domes); Infrared Telescope Facility. The observatories along the ridge in the background are (from left to right): Canada- France-Hawaii Telescope; Gemini (under construction); the 88-inch (223 cm) telescope; the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope. The remoteness of the Hawaiian islands from major landmasses and industry mean that the air is free of dust and pollutants, making it one of the best observatory sites in the world.
