About Stars Above Hawaii
Stars Above Hawaii is an exciting astronomical and educational entertainment (“edu-tainment”) program that is provided to people of all ages from all over the world at the Ko Olina Resort on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii. World-class professional star shows take place at 8 pm and 9 pm every evening by reservation. The star shows are hosted by Greg McCartney, who is a NASA/JPL Ambassador with the Solar System Ambassadors Program, a member of the Polynesian Voyaging Society and a member of the Friends of the Institute for Astronomy. Greg brings the most up to date and exciting information known about the universe to the Stars Above Hawaii with a focus on Polynesian star voyaging navigation story telling and Hawaii astronomy.

As you take your mini-vacation into space exploration, each star explorer (you) will travel through the universe light years back in time through the life cycle of the stars from stellar nurseries, to newborn baby stars, to multiple colorful star systems where couples stay together ”forever,” to supernova remnants, and into other galaxies. You will see mountain ranges and inside the craters of the Moon, Jupiter’s swirling clouds in color and its moons, as well as Saturn and its rings and moons up close, amongst many other treasures in the night sky. Whether you wish to explore the stars in wonder and amazement, or romance under the stars starry eyed with your loved one, each star show is tailored to the attendees, with the star names spoken in Hawaiian, English, Japanese, and so on, highlighting each cultures mythological understanding of the constellations and legends of the night sky.

Guests have included NASA employees, scientists, engineers, and the general public from children to newly wedded honeymooners to retirees.

Our teenage son is a huge astronomy buff lately and we were lucky enough to fit this into our schedule. Greg is an amazing guide and really did a wonderful job and showing us all the stars. My son got even more excited about astronomy after learning from Greg.

We could only a handful of reviews but they were all very positive and said that Stars Above Hawaii was a great time. The owner, Greg, also gets a lot of praise!
