Have you ever wondered if there is a place in Los Angeles where you can actually see the stars? The Griffith Observatory, located at the base of Mount Hollywood, is dedicated to sharing the complexities of the sky above us. One of the most famous observatories in the world is in our back yard believe it or not.This observatory is also the national leader in public astronomy, and it is owned and run by the City of Los Angeles. Fascinating to both astronomers, and regular college students it is a great experience. The observatory is an extra special place to visit when an eclipse is happening, but every night you will be able to look through telescopes and see the world above. The observatory is open Tuesday-Sunday and admission is always free. There are many different shows and exhibits that you can explore as well. The grounds are beautiful, and a perfect location for a first date. There are also many trails and walking paths around the observatory if you are looking to get away from the city and really explore nature. Next time you are pondering about the sky above plan a trip to the Griffith Observatory, and try and get there next time we have a solar eclipse. The view will leave you speechless, and you might even learn a thing or two about space. Imagine that!
