Haleakalā National Park on Maui offers a kilo hōkū, or star watching program this weekend.  The one hour activity gives participants an opportunity to learn more about the night sky and hear Hawaiian stories about the stars.

The program is free, but space is limited.  There is a park entrance fee of $10 per vehicle for a three-day pass, or $25 for an annual pass.

Participants should bring a red-filtered flash light, binoculars, and dress for cold temperatures.

The program runs from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 4, 2011 at Hosmer Grove, located just inside the park.  Look for the “starred” traffic cone.


The kilo hōkū activity is sponsored by Haleakalā National Park and the Hawai’i Natural History Association.
