The Space Observatory On Top Of The World Has A Beautiful Time-Lapse

Sitting high atop a dormant volcano on the Hawaiian island of Maui is the US Air Force's Space Surveillance Complex, and it's nothing short of stunning in the gorgeous night time-lapse.

The complex on Mount Haleakala is used to track objects floating around the Earth like satellites and space stations.

It's owned by the US Air Force and makes up part of the Electro-Optical Deep-Space Surveillance network. The volcanic station is one of three others like it. [Boing Boing]
