Places to Visit
Frosty Drew Observatory
This non-profit observatory offers classes in observing, has articles and essays,
and other interesting areas to explore.
This is one of the most notable observatories in the
world. Because of the expansive
view over Los Angeles, and the unique and massive structure, this observatory has
been used by film makers for many movies and television shows.
The programs for visitors, both astronomical observation
and planetarium, are quite
memorable. If you are visiting California, you should stop here for one evening, at
least. The massive Foucault pendulum is not only a functional piece of astronomical
equipment that demonstrates Earth rotation, but is also a magnificent work of art, and
there is much more.....
The observatory sponsors group stargazes and an eclipse
tour, and posts important
information regarding general astronomical occurrences on its sky information page.
