One special Saturday every month Griffith Observatory hosts a free public star party to highlight interest in observing the cosmos.
The event is a great chance to try out a variety of telescopes, check out visible objects of our solar system (Sun, Moon, and visible planets), and perhaps best of all the parties provide a forum to exchange ideas and talk to knowledgeable amateur astronomers.
The star parties take place from 2:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. and are lead by volunteers from the Los Angeles Astronomical Society, the Los Angeles Sidewalk Astronomers, and The Planetary Society.
