Our friend Josh Blash submitted this photo to EarthSky this weekend. It’s Friday night’s moon, next to the famous Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. This observatory is know for its public viewing nights and other activities. Josh wrote:
While waiting in line to use the telescope Friday night, I caught this picture of the moon behind the Zeiss telescope dome at the Griffith Observatory. It was crowded but it was nice to see so many people taking an interest in the cosmos!

Thank you, Josh!
