Observatorio de la Ballona — Urban & Rural Amateur Astronomy This is the home page for Observatorio de la Ballona, a small, private observatory in West Los Angeles, dedicated to enjoying astronomy and astrophotography.  The Observatory is named after the original Spanish land grant Rancho La Ballona and nearby Ballona Creek.

The original observatory has been joined by a second observatory, with darker rural skies in southern Riverside County. The new observatory was completed and saw first light in August, 2009. There is a full set of construction pictures available in the photo gallery.
