Mount Wilson Observatory
Come enjoy an inspiring night on the mountain!
The evening begins with a talk featuring Deborah Shapley at 5:30 pm in the Mount Wilson Observatory Auditorium. Shapley will share three stories of her grandfather Harlow Shapley’s boldness after his 1918 Mount Wilson discovery of our place in the Milky Way — his determination to keep science accessible, his fight for a more just political world, and the pursuit of proof that we are not alone in this universe so full of stars.
Following the talk, guests will be given the opportunity to observe through both the 60- and 100-inch telescopes from dusk to 11:30 pm — the two largest telescopes in the world available for public use. Additional stargazing around the grounds will be available from members of the Los Angeles Astronomical Society. Food will be available for purchase from a food truck, or bring your own picnic!
