Observing Tips


Arriving after Dark

Please make every effort to arrive on site by dusk. If you arrive after dark, as a courtesy to other members, use only your parking lights to approach the setup location.

Rattlesnake and Critter Alert!

We live in a biologically diverse area. Watch for dangers of the desert: rattlesnakes, scorpions, gopher holes, ant holes, etc. In particular, do not attempt to interact with rattlesnakes. They are much faster than our reflexes. We recommend wearing boots and long jeans to dark site star parties.
