Minimal light pollution makes Kauaʻi's Westside ideal for taking in the night sky. KEASA holds free monthly 'Starwatches' on Saturdays closest to the new moon. Educators share both their gear and insights with the public, beginning at sunset. Bring a light jacket, a lawn chair, insect repellent and a small flashlight preferably covered with red cellophane.
Follow Hwy 50 west past Hanapepe. After Mile 18, turn right at the fork to Kaumakani School. Follow the signs to the sports field, and remember to turn off your headlights when approaching. Prepare to have your mind blown. Space: it goes on forever.
