Lighting Rules in Affect After Dark, and User Responsibilities

Please arrive around sunset to allow time for setup. If you must arrive after dark, be considerate of others trying to observe, as follows:

1) Use parking lights only when entering the site after dark to help others keep their eyes dark-adapted and not ruin astro-photographs being taken.

2) Must use red lighting only, no white lights.

3) Please pick up after yourself and leave the site as you found it. Remember, we are guests at this site and are given the privilege to use it.
