Rainbow Falls (Hawaii)

Rainbow (Waiānuenue) Falls is a waterfall located in Hilo, Hawaii. It is 80 ft (24 m) tall and almost 100 ft (30 m) in diameter. The falls are part of the Hawai'i State Parks. There is no fee to see the falls.

Getting to Rainbow Falls from downtown Hilo is simple, but please take note that the directions in Google maps under the colloquial name are incorrect. Be certain to avoid the rough backroads that lack park access by following GPS directions to "Wailuku River State Park" (or continue reading). There are brown Waiānuenue signs posted to help once you are on the right track.

Directions: Follow Waiānuenue Avenue uphill past the Hilo Public Library. Keep going past Union Elementary School and continue past the middle school. Bear right at the baseball diamond; the left fork turns into Saddle Road. Turn right at the brown and yellow "Wailuku River State Park" sign. The parking lot can accommodate tour buses. If your legs are strong and accustomed to hills, it is possible to walk here from downtown Hilo. Bouldering is possible at the top of the falls if you wear decent shoes.

At Rainbow (Waiānuenue) Falls, the Wailuku River rushes into a large pool below. The gorge is blanketed by lush, dense tropical foliage and the turquoise colored pool is bordered by beautiful wild ginger. Monstera is also in abundance. The falls are accessible via Wailuku River State Park, Waiānuenue Avenue, coordinates 19 ° 43'9 "N 155 ° 6'34" W, and are best seen from the park's viewing platform.

Known in the Hawaiian language as Waiānuenue (literally "rainbow water"), [1] the falls flows over a natural lava cave, the mythological home to Hina, an ancient Hawaiian goddess. [2]

Rainbow Falls derives its name from the fact that, on sunny mornings around 10AM, rainbows can be seen in the mist thrown up by the waterfall. Timing this is quite a feat in Hilo! Sun is scarce, so you'll want to plan for a day with a clear morning, or wait until clouds pass. It is also best to come the day after a heavy rain storm so that the falls are running strong.

L'Observatoire de Nice

Astronomical observatory was established in 1879 in the city of Nice in the southwest of France Mont Gros summit (in French: Mont Gros), by banking Rafael (in French: Raphaël Bischoffsheim), and was designed by architect Charles Garnier (French: Charles Garnier), while designed the dome engineered Gustave Eiffel .


In 1870, it was not working in France after the end of the war with Prussia only three observatories school tends: one of them was in Paris, the second in Marseille, the third of whom was in Toulouse. These observatories in good condition - was not whether the equipment or technology - which led to a decline in astronomical observations movement in France at that time.

In 1873 he received the banking Rafael - which belongs to the family of Parisian prestigious in the field of exchange and are known for their love for charity - the great wealth he inherited from his father, who died with him recently, so he decided to follow what his family started in the field of philanthropy. At the same time, Rafael was a friend of the Paris Observatory astronomer claims Maurice WWE (in French: Maurice Loewy), has convinced him that he could Morris him to be a great benefit to astronomy. As such, Rafael began to contribute financially to support the Paris Observatory.

Later eternal Rafael readiness to support France Observatory astronomer modern contain stronger Aletilscobat under beautiful skies. This spark was the start of a project Nice Observatory; where View Rafael that the financial support for the project in all respects: the start of the purchase of land and through the creation of buildings and the purchase of gear and ending with the payment of employees' salaries, while the areal office became (in French: Bureau des Longitudes) as a scientific consultant for the project This was the office since its inception in 1795 the affairs specialist astronomical observatories in France.

And on this in 1878 began to work hard in order to turn the dream into reality; where areal Bureau to develop an action plan consists of two items two grounds:

    First, a committee to search for the most suitable equipment and techniques.
    II: a committee to select the most appropriate sites for the construction of the new observatory.

Indeed, the First Committee was able to choose the necessary equipment for this observatory and contains school tends lens diameter of 76 cm (30 inches), was considered the most powerful observatories in the world when created. As for the location, the Commission has carried out a search Btoal Mediterranean coast in order to get a better location.

Commission did not find a better Mont Gros summit; where 374 meters above sea level in the city of Nice, and see the sea from all sides, in addition to being relatively far from the strong wind in the Rhone Valley, but for heaven are always net of this website which provides appropriate to do astronomical observation conditions, the conclusion, the site away from the city of Nice itself so as not to cause any interference with their lights in the monitoring process, and at the same time, the Corniche Road (in French: Grande Corniche) provides access to the site simply. Colonel Wagner insisted (in French: Colonel Wagner) - who was the chief engineer works in Nice - to choose this site, especially because it is strategically located for the army, especially as it is not far from the French-Italian border.

As such, Rafael has purchased all of the summit, surface area of ​​35 hectares, has been given the architectural design of Charles Garnier - who designed the earlier of the Observatory of Paris Opera is currently known as the Opera Garnier - has been named this architectural later Europe's greatest architect. As for the dome, which contains the lens Alvmlah, all designed by engineer Gustave Eiffel - who designed the Eiffel Tower at a later time to build the observatory - and thus completed all possibilities to build an observatory.

On December 3, 1879, Garnier designed to provide scientific Office supervising the project, and so began the practical steps to implement this project on the ground. Construction work has continued throughout the seven years ending in 1886, where he was officially opening on October 27, 1887 to be the culmination of a major project in which all the effort and money for the success of the project.

At the time of the establishment of the observatory in 1887 was his lens astronomical Baktrha of 76 cm (30 inches) is one of the largest lenses Alvklah, and remained so until the left lens Lick Observatory (in French: L'Observatoire de Lick), which reached a diameter of 91 cm (36 inches).
The current situation

Currently, no longer the observatory and the presence of a scientific point on behalf of the Nice Observatory; saluting been integrated with the Research and Studies Centre for Geodynamics and astronomical (in French: CERGA) the start of 1988 to create a unified Observatory on behalf of Cote da Observatory Azur (French: Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur).
