Since opening in 1935, more than seven million people have put an eye to Griffith Observatory's original 12-inch Zeiss refracting telescope. More people have looked though it than any other telescope in the world.
Griffith Observatory has appeared in scenes in a number of movies and television shows, including the two-part Star Trek Voyager episode Future's End. In this episode, the observatory is home to a SETI project, one of the astronomers of which picks up signals from Voyager as it orbits the Earth having traveled back in time to the 1990s.
This web site is a recipient of the Griffith Observatory's "Star Award".
