Public Star Party at Griffith Observatory August 29

If you’ve got a budding little astronaut in your family, there is a not to be missed event upcoming at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA! This coming Saturday August 29, 2009 from 2:00pm to 9:45 pm the Los Angeles Astronomical Society is hosting the monthly star party. Admission is free and there will be ample opportunities for all members of the family to take a look at the sun, moon, planets and other celestial objects! There are a number of telescopes available and plenty of amateur astronomers to have conversations with. Arrive early to allow for enough time to view the sky through the telescopes before they cut off the lines for the evening (9:45pm). For more information go here.

Happy stargazing!

Where: Observatory Sidewalks and Terraces
When: 2:00-9:45 p.m. Saturday August 29, 2009

*Also note that a large asteroid has been confirmed to be safely passing close to the earth on August 30, 2009. Should be a great weekend for Astronomy/Space fans!
