16 May Take a Tour of the Stars at Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa
Early Polynesians were guided to the Hawaiian Islands with the help of the stars and now Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa invites guests to take a Tour of the Stars with their very own rooftop astronomy program! Home to Hawaii’s only recreational telescope with a 16-inch reflector, the “Great White” HD telescope, sits nine stories up on a remote site of the hotel.
Named the World’s Top Hotel for Stargazing, experience Maui’s crystal clear skies with a night of stargazing and rooftop astronomy program! 8:00pm and 9:00pm nightly shows and a special Romance Tour at 10:00pm complete with sparkling wine and chocolate strawberries. Reservations are required.
Edward J. Mahoney, Director of Astronomy and NASA Solar System Ambassador, uses a computer to select an agenda, locate and identify 1,000 objects in the sky including stars, planets, galaxies and nebulae. You’ll learn to interpret with the unaided eye, then with giant astronomy binoculars, and on to the “Great White”. It’s a cosmic experience for the entire family!
