The only remnants of the abandoned village of Gruorn are the Stephanus Church and the school house. Illumination is provided by the half moon and the old school. As usual, the front of the church faces west. The rear end with its choir faces east, where you can see the rising constellation of Leo and bright planet Mars right next to the tree.
