New show in the Samuel Oschin Planetarium - First Light: The Telescope Changed Everything! Showing each evening at 7:45 p.m.

Four hundred years ago, Galileo looked at the heavens through a telescope and saw things no one had ever seen before. Our new star show uses the amazing Zeiss Universarium star projector to reveal the beauty and wonder of the night sky. Most of us still see the sky today as our ancestors did - with our unaided eyes. From Earth, it's hard to understand why the sky looks and behaves the way it does. But Galileo's historic observations, and the era of modern science they ignited, changed all that. From Los Angeles today, we'll take you back to Padua, Italy in 1609, so you can experience for yourself how the telescope changed everything.

The Observatory is located on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park, just above the Los Feliz neighborhood. It is 1,134 feet above sea level and is visible from many parts of the Los Angeles basin.

ADMISSION to the observatory is free, but there is a charge for the Samuel Oschin Planetarium Show ($7 Adults and discounts for children, seniors & members)

Parking can be tight though - there are approximately 200 spaces. The LADOT Observatory Shuttle operates every Saturday and Sunday, except holidays, between 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. from the Vermont/Sunset Metro Red Line station to the Observatory. The bus stops in front of the Observatory every 35 minutes. The fare is 25 cents, 10 cents for seniors and persons with disabilities, and free for small children (4 years and under) and LADOT or Metrolink pass holders.
