Here is a picture taken of what the British named Diamond Head, but originally named Lē‘ahi in ʻOleo Hawaiʻi, on Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi. The picture was taken as the moon was beginning to rise.
The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum in Honolulu, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, houses the largest collection of Hawaiian and Pacific cultural artifacts and natural history specimens in the world.
