Trip to Griffith Observatory

So today I ended up going to the Griffith Observatory. I have been wanting to visit since the renovation that took place a while back. There was alot of people today, and we ended up parking about a mile away from the actual site.

The first thing that came to mind when seeing the observatory was REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. Such an iconic movie, with James Dean, an iconic actor, that was filmed here about 60 years ago. I HAD to take a picture with the James Dean statue they had placed in his honor.

The inside of the observatory was nothing more than spectacular. I was amazed with the way the renovation turned out. It was simply stunning. We roamed around for a while and ended up buying some tickets to the Centered in the Universe show.

The show was just awesome! The imagery and info given was just great. I wondered how much I would have tripped out if I was on shrooms. Tickets were cheap too! (make sure you take a student ID, as you get in for a much cheaper price!) Kudos to the lady who narrated the show. She had an awesome voice!! Her voice alone was worth the price of admission! Seriously!

After the show we ended up heading underground to see what the majority of the renovation contained. I was blown away by the awesomeness inside. They simply did a wonderful job displaying our solar system.

I also had to take a picture with Albert Einstein as well. Just because!

Upon returning back outside, we noticed the sun setting and well the picture says it all…..

I had a great time there and I can’t wait to go back! There’s still a few more shows I want to catch and I want to go back to the underground room and explore some more!
