Mauna Kea, Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii; a view of the Pu'u Poliahu cinder cone from the summit of the Mauna Kea Observatories (MKO), currently there are 13 independent multi-national astronomical research facilities located on the summit. Mauna Kea's altitude and isolation in the middle of the Pacific ocean make it an ideal location for astronomical observation.
