Maui Perseid Meteors Gathering

with No Comments

Holy Vaporizing Comet Dust!
The Perseids have arrived; the most robust meteor shower of the year.
The Peak dates are Aug. 11, 12, 13 …… the later in the night the better.

Come join the Maui Astronomy Club for meteor counting and some star gazing
on SUNDAY, AUGUST 12 at the Lahaina Animal Farm across from Launiupoko Beach Park.
For directions and website go to: THANK YOU TERESA WATERS!
This is such a special place with beautiful views and adorable animals so come around sunset if you wish.
Meteors are best witnessed later in the evening, closer to midnight, so stay as long as you can.

Gathering times between 7:30pm – 2am.

This is a farm so dress appropriately.

Bring a sleeping bag to lay out under the stars.
Bring dinner and snacks and your own beverages.
Bring a flashlight.

Please be responsible for your own trash – – there are few trash receptacles.

In 1995 At Maui High Performance Computing Center The Maui Scientific Analysis & Visualization of the Environment Program was first incubated. I was the principal investigator of this independant research project which was a joint development between MHPCC, Silicon Graphics Computers (SGI) & NKO.ORG. Using SGI Cosmo Worlds software, we pioneered the development of Internet based 3D virtual reality GIS based interactive worlds. In 1996 with a network of seven high performance SGI workstations we pioneered development of live streaming MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Real Video and QuickTime Streaming Server utilizing Kassenna MediaBase software. In Maui 2002 we pioneered and tested the first wireless live streaming video using laptop computers and Maui Sky Fiber's portable 3G wireless device. In Maui we pioneered live streaming video using usb modems from AT&T , Verizon as well as live streaming from iPhone 3 over 3G wireless networks. Today The Maui S.A.V.E. Program has diversified into storm tracking including visualization and analysis of large, memory-intensive gridded data sets such as the National Hurricane Center's wind speed probabilities. I volunteer my services to numerous Disaster Services Organizations. In June 2013 I returned from Hurricane Sandy deployment as a computer operations service associate with the Disaster Services Technology Group assisting as The American Red Cross migrated from a Disaster Response Operation to Long Term Recovery Operations. Pioneering the production/editing and Internet distribution of HD video to sites like and we are shining the light towards environmental and peace efforts of humans across the globe. Since 1992 I have held the vision of establishing Maui, Hawaii as the environmental sciences center of the world. After His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet came to Maui This vision has expanded to establishing Maui as the environmental & peace center of the world.
