NHK Live Programs from Mauna Kea
April 25, 2002
On April 23 and 24 (JST), NHK (Japan Braodcasting Corp.) held live television broadcasts from the summit of Mauna Kea. A super-sensitive high definition camera attached to the Subaru Telescope captured beautiful real-time color images of spiral galaxies M94 and M51, diffuse nebulae M16 and M17, and the globular cluster M28.
