NOTE:
At night only use parking lights on vehicles.
Avoid using any lights around the observatory.
Flashlights should be covered with a red filter.
Bright lights aimed carelessly around the observatory
can ruin a nights research. The instruments used in
astronomical research are incredibly sensitive and are
easily overexposed by bright lights.
