PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWER WILL BE HERE IN A MONTH!

The Perseids meteor shower will peak between August 11 and August 13.  This meteor shower could have numbers of medias close to 100 per hour.

I will be leading a all night session for Allens Pond Massachusetts Audubon Sanctuary, utilizing the Stone Barn location.  We will meet At the Stone Barn at around 8 PM and continue until at least 4 PM, the next morning.

The evening will start with a presentation on what to look for and how to photograph the meteor shower.  We will then go out into the field had set up for a long night.

The Stone Barn has restrooms, a kitchen, and there will be refreshments available.  If you want to sign up can do online at http://www.massaudubon.org/catalog/listing.php?program_code=230-AP12SU1.

Participants will need a camera with a wide-angle lens, sturdy tripod, shutter release, a flashlight with a red lens, insect repellent
(preferably without DEET), and plenty of storage cards for your camera.

For those that want to, click okay will be able to view some of their photographs on my computer and learn about post processing.  If you are interested in this, bring a flash drive so you pictures can be downloaded onto the flash drive.

I hope to see you there to watch this fantastic sky show.
