July 2024 Hawaii Island Events Calendar



This is going to be quite the 4th of July for us this year! The non-profit I helped create, the 365 Hawaii Island Community Fund, became the fiduciary of the fireworks this year in order to save the show after the long time band of volunteers decided to move on to other projects. We didn’t want to see the parade and fireworks end, so we formed a new committee of volunteers (ALL from the 365 Kona newbies network!) and will be bringing you a show to be proud of! Mahalos to Chris Colby, Ono Loa Grill, for generously coming in with a top $5000 sponsorship in order to make sure we would have fireworks this year!

We hope to bring in a drone show next year, but sure would love your support by attending and even contributing to the GoFundMe to help fund the fireworks.

W. M. Keck Observatory Astronomy Talk – From the Possibility to the Certainty of a Supermassive Black Hole

Kahilu Theatre

67-1186 Lindsey Rd. Kamuela

6:00pm to 7:30pm

Learn about new developments in the study of supermassive black holes with 2020 Nobel Prize laureate Andrea Ghez. Through the capture and analysis of twenty years of high-resolution imaging, the UCLA Galactic Center Group has moved the case for a supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy from a possibility to a certainty and provided the best evidence to date for the existence of these truly exotic objects. This was made possible with the first measurements of stellar orbits around a galactic nucleus. Further advances in state-of-the-art of high-resolution imaging technology on the world’s largest telescopes have greatly expanded the power of using stellar orbits to study black holes. Recent observations have revealed an environment around the black hole that is quite unexpected (young stars where there should be none; a lack of old stars where there should be many; and a puzzling new class of objects). Continued measurements of the motions of stars have solved many of the puzzles posed by these perplexing populations of stars. This work is providing insight into how black holes grow and the role that they play in regulating the growth of their host galaxies. Measurements this past year of stellar orbits at the Galactic Center have provided new insight on how gravity works near a supermassive hole, a new and unexplored regime for this fundamental force of nature.
