I made this film with my buddy u/verydangerousasp. It definitely made me appreciate the power of space to bring people together. Thanks for watching!


How the Griffith Observatory came to be: “Colonel Griffith J. Griffith left funds in his will to build a public observatory in Los Angeles because he believed in the transformative power of observation. After looking through the research telescope at Mt. Wilson he said: *‘If all mankind could look through that telescope, it would change the world!’”*


I’ve seen this one before but what with everything that’s going on with the lockdown, with the tension of the past few weeks and everything else… this time it made me tearful.


Man, I went to some…I think it was like an astronomy club (?) thing with a bunch of UCF students probably 7 or 8 years ago, and it was really something else. Different telescopes looking at different stuff, and all of it was mindblowing. Like, you see this stuff all the time in pictures and videos, but actually looking at it real time is crazy. I halfway regret how high I was, because I’m fairly certain I saw Jupiter in remarkable detail, but I wouldn’t bet my lunch money on it now. Obviously being baked made the experience better as it was happening, but…


Everybody loves astronomy. It’s ingrained in our DNA.
