From its base in the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii's inactive volcano Mauna Kea rises over 33,000 feet, with 14,000 of that above sea level. Atop the mountain is the Mauna Kea Observatories that form some of the most important astronomical observation sites in the world. The dry atmosphere and subsequent lack of clouds make it a perfect place to watch the stars. The light pollution project Sky Glow Project spent a day on the mountain, capturing this incredible time lapse of the crystal-clear skies above Hawaii.
The annual Activision cash cow is returning from space and getting back to its roots. The 14th entry in the venerable first-person shooter franchise takes us to the beaches of Normandy during the D-Day invasion. The hyper-realistic CGI sequences are nearly Saving Private Ryan-worthy, but the actual gameplay remains to be seen. Call of Duty: WWII is planned to release later this year on multiple platforms.
