Get ready for an amazing nighttime photography workshop! The Geminids meteor shower is approaching and you won't want to miss the chance to take some amazing shots! Be sure to take a late afternoon nap as the start time for the program is 9:30pm! We'll start with a hot cup of coffee/tea/chocolate in the Stone Barn as we discuss the shower and how to best photograph it and then will head out into the field. There will be time afterwards to review shots and discuss best practices and the experience.

Instructions and Directions: The Stone Barn is located at 786 East Horseneck Road in South Dartmouth, MA. If you're headed towards the field station, take a left onto East Horseneck Road and continue down the hill, past Quansett Nursery and you'll see the driveway marked for the Stone Barn.

Registration is required.

Anybody would like to come and just through the sky watching for the meteors.  I welcome, however, registration is also required.

The forecast is predicting 50-60 meteors per hour at the height of the shower.  If the weather holds out, it should be a great evening.
