Mount Wilson Observatory, Southern California’s historic home to over 100 years of groundbreaking astronomical discovery, proudly announces it will re-open to the public on Tuesday, June 15, 2021. Located on a peak in the San Gabriel Mountains of the Angeles National Forest, near Pasadena, the Observatory closed in early 2020 in accordance with the US Forest Service’s observance of Covid-19 and pandemic safety guidelines. The gates to Mount Wilson’s acreage will open at 10 am every day the remainder of the summer and close at sunset. Parking will be available, and visitors can hike the grounds, gaze at the telescope domes that dot the landscape, and browse through the Historic Museum in the Lecture Hall.

To accompany the reopening, the Observatory also announces the creation of an expansive multi-platform campaign to celebrate its history, “Discovering Mount Wilson.” Starting on Tuesday June 15, Mount Wilson “Chapters” – brief stories about the Mountain’s history – will pop up on the Mount Wilson website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, donor newsletters and other platforms to showcase a rich legacy of astronomy narrative in the 20th century. The Chapters will utilize stunning archival images captured by the telescopes, and pictures of the physical evolution of the mountain facility itself, which hosts two historically important telescopes: the 100-inch Hooker telescope, (featuring the world’s largest aperture from 1917 to 1949), and the 60-inch telescope (world’s largest operational telescope from 1908 to 1917).
