MOONBOW OVER HAWAII - #2458 The light of a nearly-full moon formed this moonbow in a light rain over Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. This view is centered on the star-poor sky region of the constellation Lynx, but is helped out a bit by the planet Mars shining at upper left.
Winding road to Haleakala - Early Hawaiians applied the name Haleakalā ("house of the sun") to the general mountain. Haleakalā is also the name of a peak on the south western edge of Kaupō Gap. (rePinned 082413TLK)
