Griffith Observatory is 79 years young this year and still looks great from any angle. The Observatory is also a reliably incredible vantage point from which to see the city, as reinforced by this brief 180-degree, fly-around helicopter video from Instagram users Danorst and Copterpilot (via Discover LA). They manage to capture the Observatory in a way that shows off both the city lights and the wonderful architecture of the building itself (by John C. Austin and Frederick M. Ashley), and of course, from angles that'd be impossible without a helicopter or drone.
