What to bring: Please dress for the weather. Bring your own drinking water. Red flashlights are recommended for watching where you are walking. If you do not have a red flashlight, red cellophane will be provided for you cover your light with. This will help everyone keep their eyes adjusted to darkness for better night sky viewing. Bringing items such as a folding chair, a blanket to sit on, and snack items are recommended but not required.
