Times reader "phreader" captured this photo of L.A.'s iconic Griffith Observatory during a recent trip. "Visited family in L.A. in mid-January and caught 85-degree weather, fantastic sunsets and scenes like this," the photographer said. "Golden memories for sure."

Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park opened May 14, 1935. The observatory sits on 3,015 acres of land donated to the city of Los Angeles by Griffith J. Griffith, a mining and real estate mogul. Griffith donated money to build the observatory to make astronomy more accessible to the public.
