Observing in CA
Astronomers came to California in the late 1800s because of the steady mountaintop air needed to have a clear window to the universe. The golden era of California astronomy and astrophysics began when Lick Observatory opened in San Jose in 1988, Mount Wilson Observatory opened in LA in 1904, Griffith Observatory opened in LA in 1935, and Palomar Observatory opened near San Diego in 1949.
We will take you to the Griffith Observatory - one of the most famous and visited landmarks in Los Angeles due to its unique architecture and setting. We will learn about the history behind the observatory, engage with local amateur astronomers, and look through the giant telescopes if we visit at the right times. The observatory is set against the backdrop of Los Angeles skyline. The view is unforgeable and the experience is priceless.
