Star Party at Griffith Observatory
One Saturday a month, the Observatory hosts a public star party. Knowledgeable telescope demonstrators are available to guide visitors in observing. Look through a large variety of professional and home-built telescopes to view the sun, planets, the moon and deep sky objects like double-stars, star clusters, and nebulae.
Please be aware that the demonstrators must cut off the line for each telescope by 9:30 p.m. or earlier to enable all viewing to be completed by 9:45 p.m. Hours of telescope operation are not the same as for the building (which closes at 10:00 p.m.)
