Griffith Observatory will broadcast a life viewing in an hour (March 1, 6pm PT).

I knew about the conjunction of course, but it was too cloudy here as well... as it almost always is during the winter.

Yes, VERY different climate. Times like this, I envy you Californians. But not always, that's for sure.
