Mauna Kea--I'm on the Top of the World!

Wow!! Look at me! I'm standing on the highest mountain in the world. The air is very thin, so I'm feeling a little lightheaded.

This is one of the best places on the globe to see the celestial sphere--everything in outer space. Behind me is one of the thirteen observatories on this mountaintop. The next photo shows four more. The silver one on the right belongs to NASA and only measures infrared light.
