What a cosmic alignment:
With the 70th anniversary of the Griffith Observatory, the venerable structure reaching the one year mark (maybe) until it's grand reopening, and yes, the premiere of the final Star Wars
film all taking place within one week of each other, I thought it was time to get my geek on and check in with the Observatory's renovation photos page.
Last updated on May 3, the pics
(scroll down for latest images) show the installation of the planetarium's new Zeiss projector, as well as progress on the Nimoy Event Horizon and the long, glass Transit Corridor, which should offer spectacular views of the basin.
Also of interest to Observatory aficianados, as well as fans of poorly produced, yet painfully earnest public access programming, is this excerpt
from an Orange County astronomy show which features a walk-through of the ambitious expansion and renovation project.
