ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Meteor Showers are one of the most beautiful displays you can witness while outside at night. You seem to never forget those times you see one flying through the atmosphere at speeds sometimes exceeding 100,000mph. The Lyrid Aquarid Meteor Shower is modest meteor shower with a few nice fireballs. The rates are around 10-20/hr, but many of them are fairly bright. We will start out with a moonless sky and have it that way for most of the night. The crescent moon will rise later at night providing us excellent opportunities to photograph the night sky and seascapes in a variety of lighting situations. We will also photography the Milky way and the Moon in the same shot! This will be one relaxing and exciting night under the stars.
We will be up shooting the entire night. A room is not needed overnight. The closest hotels are in Ocean City, MD and short drive north of the island. You may also find a campsite on Assateague Island if you wish to camp. I will most likely be reserving a campsite. If you wish to grab a site near me, let me know and I will help you out.
