Maui 2012

View from Haleakala (highest mountain on Maui, Hawaii) onto a moon-like volcanic landscape. However, the clouds below us and the blue sky make clear, it's not the moon (by Ronny Errmann).

The last Transit of Venus happened in summer 2012. I had the chance to participate at a workshop about planet search around other stars. The day of the transit we spent on the summit of Haleakala, the highest mountain of Maui, Hawaii. From there we observed the transit and also learned a lot about geology of earth. During the hike over the crater field, I took this picture.
