ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

This workshop will explore some of the most scenic locations on Assateague Island for the Quadrantid Meteor Shower. This meteor puts on a stellar show on the peak night with up to and over 200 meteor per hour. I have seen hundreds of meteor in a single night with this shower and it will be an amazing way to ring in 2022.

I will have a group campsite reserved on the island for the night (which is included in the workshop) If you would like to camp with us, please do! It's is encouraged!  Beach camping is one of the best parts of this experience, you really feel connected to the island after spending a night out there. There are a number of hotels in nearby Ocean City, MD for you to choose from if you wish to get a room there and warm up after the workshop ends early on the morning of January 4th, 2022.

WEATHER

Weather can be unpredictable as we all know.  We will still battle through the weather and learn a lot about night sky shooting and our cameras. We will be camping outside the from Friday through Sunday morning. We will sleep in tents on the beach, if you do not have a tent, I may be able to supply you with one. May temps are incredible here is time of year where the seasons are changing. The temperature could be chilly, or warm, we won't know for sure until the week before. This workshop runs rain or shine.

LODGING

Lodging can be found for our first night in Cambridge, MD.  The following two nights will be beach camping on Assateague Island National Seashore. I will be reserving a group site for the weekend.  This is a great opportunity and a great outdoor experience in a place I have been visiting for nearly 20 years. If you wish to find a hotel to stay in during the day while we are at Assateague, the closest town is Ocean City, Maryland about 17 minutes north from the island. Do not hesitate to ask me any questions about camping. I have camped here over 50 nights.
