Come one, come all...

well, as long as you are between the ages of 18-39, your kids can come too, so I guess the ages are 0-39 as long as you have adult supervision.
TIG presents, The Griffith Observatory
July 9th.
Details will be announced sooner than later, but for now, I am told the actual observatory is free. Also The observatory will be hosting a Star Party on the day of our visit.

Public Star Parties
Free public star parties are held monthly with the assistance of the Los Angeles Astronomical Society and the Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers at the Griffith Observatory from 2:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. They are a chance for the whole family to look at the sun, moon, visible planets, and other objects, to try out a variety of telescopes, and to talk to knowledgeable amateur astronomers about the sky and their equipment.

Please be aware that the astronomers and telescope demonstrators must cut off the line for each telescope to enable all viewing to be completed by 9:45 p.m. Hours for telescope operation are not the same as for the building (which closes at 10:00 p.m.).

Very Cool, No?
