Enjoy a dazzling view of L.A. all lit up at night and learn about the cosmos at the same time. The Griffith Observatory is a local icon and national leader in public astronomy. It’s also a popular gathering place and one of So Cal’s biggest attractions. Ponder our role in the universe, partake in real astronomy, ID the constellations through powerful telescopes, attend a screening plus Q&A, join a “star party” and watch live shows. The sunset walks and talks are a great entry point.
