Anyone know of some good red lights to use for observing? I'm looking for lights I can put on the ground instead of flashlights.

They do make red chemlights, but the green ones are better and don't destroy your night vision. Look for them at Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain, or Amazon.

Mortal as I am, I know that I am born for a day. But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the earth.
