The two story ranch house, with the lights appropriately "red" for astronomy.
Lots and lots of cedars on the property. One foggy morning....
There are LOTS of white tail deer. In fact, that's how BuckSnort Observatory got its' name. Most nights these bucks snort at me and scare the heck outta me while do my imaging!
The ranch is about 35 miles from Fort Hood. Sometimes the military have night maneuvers and drop flares.
