My Pillow Just Slapped Me Upside The Head And Said What Are You Still Doing Up!

Griffith Observatory

California Week

How can you go without sleep for seven days and not be tired?

Sleep at night.

Interesting Fact: 3,015 acres (12.20 km2) of land surrounding the observatory was donated to the City of Los Angeles by Colonel Griffith J. Griffith on December 16, 1896.[1] In his will Griffith donated funds to build an observatory, exhibit hall, and planetarium on the donated land. Griffith’s objective was to make astronomy accessible by the public, as opposed to the prevailing idea that observatories should be located on remote mountaintops and restricted to scientists. ( )


  1. I did it for months with brief moments of sleep in between. And, where does one find a pillow like this? Great shot!

  2. We need both kinds of observatories: some close enough to welcome the public and some in very remote places with silent deeply dark skies. Different purposes, but both important and relying on the other.
    I hear Griffith is fabulous enough to intrigue anyone. Love the pix with the purple sky and sparkling city below the stately building….looks a little like a Sci-fi stage set with the lighting and contrasts?

    • You are right I never thought about it that way. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging. 🙂

  3. Your photo is lovely. California caught my eye. Back in the early 80’s, husband and I visited Mount Palomar Observatory in San Diego. It was an awesome experience. Thank you for the memory and for sharing:) denise
