The following photos were taken over this past weekend by local Big Island photographer Ethan Tweedie. The photos were taken at Pu`ukohola Heiau National Historic Site during the Perseid Meteor Shower, which this year coincided with the park’s annual Hawaiian Cultural Festival. Mahalo to Ethan for sharing these amazing photos with us so that we could share them with you! Enjoy:
