Night at Griffith Observatory

[observatories_13.jpg]

Perched on a ridge in Griffith Park overlooking the city lights of Los Angeles, California, Griffith Observatory may no longer be useful as a research facility. But by exposing countless visitors each year to the wonders of the universe through its planetarium shows, exhibits and telescopes, this historic observatory has done more than perhaps any other to popularize the science of astronomy.

The Griffith Observatory building reopened in late 2006 after the completion of a major renovation and expansion; more information may be found at the Griffith Observatory web page.
