Caption: Milky Way over Mauna Kea observatories. View of the Milky Way in the night sky over the domes of the twin Keck telescopes, part of the Mauna Kea Observatories (MKO) on the summit of the Mauna Kea volcano, Big Island, Hawaii. The laser beams are used to create artificial guide stars. By focusing on the artificial guide star created by a laser beam, the telescopes are calibrated to remove the effects of the atmosphere on observations, a process known as adaptive optics (AO). At lower right is the Subaru Telescope. 9 August 2015.
