The hike to the viewing site is not long but it is over a rocky hill, so it is best to wear good walking shoes. Things you will need:

  • Camera with cable release
  • Tripod
    Flashlight, preferably with red light to avoid distracting other photographers
  • Insect repellent
  • Folding chair or stool
  • Water
