What we're about

Everyday Spacer Los Angeles is a Meetup for anyone with even a mild interest in space exploration, astronomy and similar topics.

You should join if you would like to go to a star party and look through a variety of telescopes and see objects in the night sky. Or maybe you like hearing lectures about interesting, updated topics from notable engineers and scientists.

Not your thing?

How about some hands-on/'maker' type events?

We'll list local events in each of these areas and more (see our topics list below).

If you decide to join, you can expect us to list as many events as we learn about in Los Angeles and beyond. We'd love your help of course. And, if you become a member, you'll be expected to actually participate in something we list!

This is important.

It's not a 'meetup' if you never attend an event. Please be sure to R.S.V.P. 'YES' if you intend to go. A 'NO' or no answer will be considered the same. If you happen to show up at an event with limited resources in spite of that, you may be turned away and we'll all be sad about that!

Mainly, we want to show you ways you can personally and directly participate in this exciting area and have FUN doing it!

If you ever need anything from us, do call or write. We'll include contact information anytime you join and we send you the traditional 'welcome' message - usually within a day or two.

Thank you and enjoy the events we already found and listed for you.

Garvey Nights at the Garvey Ranch Observatory

GARVEY RANCH PARK OBSERVATORY

On every Wednesday night, the LAAS members enjoy an evening of astronomy at the Garvey Ranch Observatory in Monterey Park, CA. The observatory is part of a historical building that also contains a small museum and a Community Center classroom. The observatory is located in the Garvey Ranch Park which is nestled in a safe and quiet residential neighborhood, overlooking the San Gabriel Valley. This event is free and always open to the public. The LAAS has several programs and activities at Garvey Ranch Park. We have free Telescope-making classes in the workshop area. You can learn how to grind your own mirror and build your own scope. Free and seasonal astronomy classes are presented by our members who participate as instructors. We also have star parties on the lawn, weather permitting. And if you need help setting-up a new telescope, bring it along and ask one of our members for help. You can also go into the dome and observe the night sky using the 8 Inch refracting telescope. Address: Garvey Ranch Park 731 S. Orange Ave. Monterey Park, CA. 91755 This event is hosted by Los Angeles Astronomical Society (LAAS)
