The Observatory Observed


I took this photo of Griffith Observatory, one of my favorite sights along my hike around the Hollywood Hills.  It was recently reopened after a $93 million renovation and last month was spared from being consumed by the Los Angeles Station fire thanks to the enormous efforts of local firefighters. 

I thought it was a perfect symbol for a blog about communications.

I’m so glad the observatory is still standing, as it houses the most visited telescope in the world–the 12-inch Zeiss refracting telescope.

Did you know that 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy (IYA), which celebrates the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s telescope observations?

For more information about the IYA and events at the Observatory see the website: http://www.griffithobservatory.org/

For my fellow astronomy lovers…
