Why Hawaii Was The Sweetest Spot To See The ‘Blood Moon’ (PHOTOS)

Due to its low light pollution, remote and idyllic landscapes, and a whole sub-population of people with a passion for astronomy, Hawaii may have been the Western Hemisphere’s sweetest spot for observing the “blood moon.”

The state, which is home to the famed Mauna Kea observatories on the Big Island of Hawaii and the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii on Oahu, is affectionately known as “Earth’s connecting point to the rest of the Universe.” Moreover, given Hawaii’s history with expert navigators, “knowledge of the night sky is an integral part of [Hawaii’s] culture and history,” according to the institute’s outreach coordinator and astronomer Dr. Roy Gal.

The time difference helps too. While most stargazers across North and South America had to set their alarms in order to catch the stellar sight, astronomy enthusiasts and several staffers from the institute and the observatories enjoyed the eclipse starting at about 8 p.m. HST on April 14.

“Mauna Kea is one of, if not, the most spiritually connected places I have ever set foot on,” photographer Andrew Richard Hara told HuffPost. “The ability to witness the entirety of the Milky Way with your bare eyes is something not only incredible but also humbling to acknowledge how interconnected we are with the Earth, atmosphere, and the space above.”
