|Moth Night: set up before dark|
The event was part of a county study to see how many species of moths are around and about this particular area. So while there are people at this event doing real scientific data collecting, there are also people like myself there pointing and saying "Oh, look at this one!" What is nice is that all participants' comments and observations are welcome because moths are quick and there are so many at any given time that extra eyes really do help those who are collecting the data.
