Griffith Observatory’s new Camera Obscura is a larger and more capable version of a previous exhibit.

The current version features a periscope-like tube on the east side of the Observatory’s roof , which reflects images down onto the Camera Obscura table.

With its continuously rotating tube, the Camera Obscura provides a spectacular 360°- field view of Los Angeles vistas and reminds visitors that they have reached an observational junction of earth and sky.

The Observatory’s new Camera Obscura instrument was built by George Keene.
