This is the first of two posts on Griffith Observatory. This post doesn't showcase the Observatory structure at all. First are a couple of views from the Observatory and the other pictures are of the Astronomers Monument on the front lawn. The monument features six astronomers (Hipparchus, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Herschel) and was completed in 1934 before the opening of the Observatory. If you would like to plan a visit, see their website at http://www.griffithobservatory.org/.
