Members of Geocaching, a GPS treasure-hunting group, gather at Skygate Park to observe Lahaina Noon. The phenomenon, unique to Hawaii, occurs when the sun is directly overhead and results in objects casting very little or no shadow. At the moment of Lahaina Noon the shadow of the Skygate sculpture (as well as those of the Geocaching members) was centered directly below it.
