The Griffith Observatory will hold a celebration of the winter solstice on Saturday, Dec. 21, with two presentations. The solstice, the moment when the Earth’s South Pole is closest to the sun, is commonly referred to as the shortest day of the year because it is the day with least amount of sunlight.
The observatory will celebrate at 11:40 a.m. in the Gottlieb Transit Corridor with a special presentation by staff. At 4:30 p.m., a solstice presentation will be held on the West Terrace.
The Observatory is located at 2800 E. Observatory Road. For information, visit griffithobservatory.org.
