For more than a century, Los Angeles has been changing public perspective on life, the universe, and everything through scientific research, space exploration, the entertainment industry, and public astronomy. 

Public Astronomy, Los Angeles Style includes a set of six original articles by six experts on different aspects of public astronomy. Richly illustrated, this publication shows how wealthy philanthropists, world-class observatory developers, famous astronomers, enthusiastic amateurs, local telescope makers, astronomical educators, public observatories, and everyday people all made sure the moon and stars really are for everyone. 


Edited by Griffith Observatory Director E.C. Krupp and NASM Curator David DeVorkin, this entertaining account of a hidden heritage of Los Angeles is available for purchase below.
