Los Angeles, CA

Astronomy on Tap Los Angeles has hosted over 100 monthly events since 2016, each featuring two informal public science talks by researchers from Caltech, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Carnegie Institute of Washington, The Planetary Society, UCLA, Pasadena City College, Griffith Observatory, and more.  We also include astronomy-themed pub trivia with prizes, guided stargazing with telescopes, and live rock music by Jason Achilles and Forrest Mitchell.  Many of our events are recorded, live-streamed, and available for watch on our YouTube channel.  We also host semi-regular foreign language events in Spanish and in Mandarin Chinese.

AoT LA is organized by Dr. Cameron Hummels.  For more information about our AoT schedule and related public astronomy events in LA, see our twitter feed, facebook page, instagram page, and/or our website.  To see photos and video of our previous events, check out our Flickr page, and YouTube channel.
