Try gazing at heavenly bodies with the guidance of experts from the Hawaiian Astronomical Society about 55 minutes away from the Ko Olina Beach Villas. The Hawaiian Astronomical Society is holding a free public star party on June 6, 2015, at their dark sky site (Dillingham Airfield in Mokuleia). They provide the telescopes and you get to look at really cool stuff like globular clusters, double stars, galaxies and nebulae!
Be sure to arrive before 6:30 p.m., because the gate to the airfield is locked at around 7:00 p.m.. The gate will be opened at scheduled times to allow people to leave – usually about two hours after sundown, at 10:30 p.m. and at midnight (when everyone must leave).
