Attraction Spotlight: Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii

 

The Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii, on the Big Island, is presenting “Cosmic Questions,” a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory that encourages interaction from visitors as they ponder the place of humans in the universal scheme and explore such mysteries as dark matter and black holes.

The center regularly features more than 100 exhibits intertwining astronomy and Hawaiian culture in fascinating ways. Its stunning architecture of titanium cones instantly put Imiloa on the map when it opened last year. The Smithsonian exhibition will be housed there through 2008. Visit www.imiloahawaii.org.
