Griffith park Observatory

One of the seven wonders of LA. the amazing Griffith Park Observatory. Hiding downstairs is this incredible room with planets hanging from the ceiling. You can't really see but way down at the lefthand end are a few tiny little planets, ours being the third, of course. These are built to scale. "Insignificant" springs to mind.

There were also scales that tell you how much you would weigh on each planet. I weigh 15 lbs on Pluto, let's go!

The Los Angeles sky line, smog included.
This is a sundial. It was remarkably accurate.
Shaun looks at the pendulum. He was so excited to see it knock down the little markers.
There goes another one.
The real life Hollywood sign.
