Join us for an afternoon of discovery as we explore the past, present, and future of astronomy at the Carnegie Observatories. This year we connect Carnegie Observatories then and now, celebrating the upcoming 100th anniversary of first light on the 100-inch Hooker telescope at Mt. Wilson.

We are expecting large numbers this year and parking is limited. Please consider taking public transit. The Observatories is a 10 minute walk from the Lake Metro Goldline station. There is ample free parking at the Sierra Madre Villa station. Lyft/Uber might also be a good option.

* See amazing photos from Las Campanas, Carnegie's state-of-the-art observatory in Chile
* Visit the Machine Shop to see how instruments are made for our telescopes in Chile
