No shadows: Parts of Hawaii to experience ‘Lahaina Noon’
HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - This month, many areas around the Hawaiian Islands are going to experience the phenomenon known as “Lahaina Noon.” This is when the sun is directly overhead and vertical objects like flagpoles do not cast a shadow.
The event happens every May and July in Hawaii.
To see Lahaina Noon locations, dates and times, head to the Bishop Museum’s website.
According to the Bishop Museum, this phenomenon only occurs in the tropics; the Sun is never directly overhead in any other part of the planet.
