FILE - In this Oct. 3, 2006 file photo, people explore the interior of the expanded Griffith Observatory on Mount Hollywood in Los Angeles. Griffith Park bills itself as the largest urban wilderness in the United States. While the zoo and some of the park's other attractions charge admission, the world-famous Griffith Observatory does not. Nighttime visitors are free to check out the moon and stars through its powerful telescopes, while those arriving during the day can safely gaze at the sun. Or they can just walk outside to take in some of the city's best views of the iconic Hollywood Sign. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File)
