In order to get the most out of our viewing events, take a look at the list of tips below!

  • You may wish to bring a folding chair and a flashlight (to navigate the path to the viewing area).
  • Feel free to bring a pair of binoculars, if you have them.
  • Waterproof / water-resistant shoes are highly recommended, as the grass tends to collect evening dew.
  • Evenings can get chilly, so you might want to consider a jacket.
  • Don’t forget to put on some bug spray!
