Hawaii or Big Island is the largest island in the US state of Hawaii. When the "Pacific Plate" moved over a hot spot in this region, the volcanoes that formed the current morphology of the island emerged. The five largest volcanoes are called: Kohala, Hualalai, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Kilauea. At the top of Mauna Kea, the Mauna Kea Observatory is one of the most important astronomical observatories.
