Having worked atop Mauna Kea for years, I know that the terrain can be conducive to snow sticking around, especially on the north slopes of cinder cones where it gets less sun. And I knew that earlier in the week, I had seen a few patches of snow remaining in a basin on the north side of the Subaru Telescope, where I work, and the adjacent W.M. Keck Observatory. On the afternoon of Saturday, February 13, between 15:21 and 15:28 local time, I was able to take a series of photos including this one, using an iPhone 3G.
