However, for the first time AstroDay will be also celebrated on the west side of the Big Island, hosted at the Kona Commons Shopping Center in Kailua-Kona. AstroDay is funded and organized by the Maunakea Astronomy Outreach Committee (, a consortium of Hawaii observatories, education, and space-related organizations.The event will be held between 11am - 4pm, in the space vacated by the Sport Authority. Activities will include a portable planetarium, solar viewing, science demos, robotics, experiments and games.
