This region is a virtual replica of Haleakala Observatory which is one of the most important astronomical observing sites in the world. Lying above the tropical inversion layer it experiences superb seeing conditions and dominant clear skies. The University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy has managed this site for over 4 decades as a location for conducting dedicated astrophysical experiments. In most cases these are programs that could not be conducted anywhere else on Earth. Currently we have partners from the National Science Foundation, NASA, the Pan-STARRS consortium, Space Telescope Science Institute, Tohoku University in Japan, the Air Force and others working with us on the summit.

We will be having monthly events at our virtual Haleakala Observatory which will be simulcast from The University of Hawaii, Astronomy Dept. Please watch for notices and events postings for more details.
