Photo: MILKY WAY ABOVE EASTER ISLAND: NASA APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day). 887 moai or stone giants stand against the barren landscape of Easter Island, averaging 13 feet tall and weighing 14 tons. Also known as "Rapa Nui" and "Isla de Pascua", Easter Island is one of the most remote places on earth, more than 2,000 miles from Tahiti or Chile. The juxtaposition of these enigmatic moai against the grandeur of the Milky Way, makes for a beautiful image.
