Upcoming Event: Public Star Party
It is almost time again for another public star party at the Griffith Observatory. The next party is Saturday, February 12 from 2 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Every month, the Los Angeles Astronomical Society and the Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers get together to host a free star party for the public. This allows the public, including families, to view the stars and other objects in the sky through telescopes put out by the observatory. You can also speak to amateur astronomers about their experience and equipment.
Please note that in order to complete the viewings by 9:45 p.m., lines for the telescopes must be closed early. For more information visit www.griffithobservatory.org/pstarparties.html
In addition, be sure to take a look at the calendar of events for Woodland Hills Camera & Telescopes to see when other opportunities are available for you to take part in viewing parties or on your own. There you can find dates for moon phases as well as other significant events so you and your family can share time together gazing at the stars and learning more about astronomy. While youâ€™re there, take a look at our selection of telescopes for astronomers of any age and skill level.
