Upcoming Submitted Events
Free public star parties are held monthly at Griffith Observatory from 2:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. with the assistance of volunteers from the Los Angeles Astronomical Society, the Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers, and The Planetary Society. 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.

We will be discussing upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, as well as receiving updates on Planetary Society activities. We often feature presentations by our own volunteers or guest speakers on a space or science related topic. You will be able to meet and engage with your fellow volunteers over a bite to eat.
