Mauna Kea, Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii; a wooden sign designating the boundary for the Mauna Kea Icea Age Natural Area Reserve sits alongside the road leading to 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.
