Saturday, October 8, 2016 Griffith Park Observatory is hosting one of their monthly star parties. Volunteers from the Los Angeles Astronomical Society, the Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers, and The Planetary Society will be there with their telescopes set up on the lawns. Griffith Observatory’s large telescopes will also be open to the public. Viewings take place from 2 PM to 9:30 PM. The main building closes at 10 PM.
Admission and parking are always free, but you may want to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk a ways to find parking as the main lot fills up quickly. Or there is a DASH shuttle that stops by the Greek Theatre and will take you all the way to the top for $0.50 each way (discounted fare with a valid TAP card payment).
