To get there, observers will turn north from Main St. just west of the Hospital onto McMillen Dr. (at CVS Store) and turn right at Hospital Dr. Parking will be on the left. The general public will be able to walk the grounds until the moon rises above the horizon. The moon will begin rising above the horizon at approximately 10:00 PM.
