On my recent trip to Maui, Hawaii, I missioned up to the Haleakala Crater in the middle of the night in hopes of shooting the stars. Its the 4th best place to view the sky on earth. During the winter months in Whistler you don’t see much of the Milky Way so I wasn’t sure what I’d find. After a few cold hours sleeping in the car and waiting for the moon to set, I got up around 4 am to this view. You can see Venus and the lights of the Big Island in the distance. Pretty stoked!
