Viewing Session

Important Information - Please read

Event Cost - $75.00 per person

We are limited by the Mt. Wilson Observatory to the number of people that can attend a viewing session, so space is at a premium.  If you are interested, please register as soon as possible.  Attendees will be chosen on a first come first served basis, and there will be a waiting list.  Minimum age for attendance is 12 years old.

There is limited parking at the observatory.  Car-pooling will be required.  When registering, please let us know if you are willing to take passengers, and how many.  We will be meeting at approximately 4:00 PM at a restaurant in La Cañada before heading up the mountain.  We will be able to leave cars at the meeting place.

Information on the meeting place will be provided via e-mail one to two weeks prior to the event.  There will also be more information on “What you should know before leaving home”, and a "go or no go" phone number to call the day of the event, provided via email 2-3 weeks prior to the event.

We will be able to dine at the restaurant in La Cañada, and/or you may bring water and snacks into the observatory.  The observatory provides hot water, hot chocolate, coffee, tea, cups and spoons.

Mount Wilson is in the San Gabriel Mountains of the Angeles National Forest of Southern California, approximately 33 miles from downtown Los Angeles. With an elevation of 5,700 ft., visitors with cardiac and respiratory concerns should be aware that access to the 60-inch dome and to the observing position at the telescope requires walking up stairs.

*** Please note that this event is being made available to a very limited number of PCA members.  This will not be one of our typical “Fun Runs”, in that we are recommending that you DO NOT drive your Porsche, unless it's a Macan, Cayenne or Panamera.  We are recommending attendees drive a sedan or SUV to this event.  When we leave the mountain at 1:00 A.M., the roads are very dark, and there may be rocks or hazards on the roads going back down the hill.
