In Case You Missed It

Enjoy this special photo of Snow-Capped Maunakea

HIRSC - Hawaii Island (Holualoa) Team


In the event, you missed sunrise over a snow-capped Maunakea earlier this morning, here's a photo of the beautiful snowy scene that blanketed the summit of Maunakea that was taken from the Mauna Loa Observatory at 11,135-feet just after sunrise Wednesday, January 27th, 2021.

This photo was taken by our HIRSC Administrator Benjamin Agdeppa. If you would like to use his photo of the beautiful snowy sunrise over Maunakea, please message him directly for use.

The weather that this morning was fog inversion layer that settled on the lower elevations and cleared as he ascended to the 11,135-foot elevation. To see more photos from that morning, please click here to view the full album of photos he took earlier this morning. The album also includes a view of Hualalai and Pu'uwa'awa'a to the West and also a clear view of the Kohala (Gold) Coast.

Mahalo to Ben for sharing this photo with the HIRSC followers.
