A Great Night To Be Outside

The changing weather can only mean one thing!  It’s time to get outside at night for some star trail photography!  Pull out the warm clothes and get ready for some late nights!

Here are a couple of websites that will help you out:
NASA – Meteor Showers 2016
EarthSky
Light Stalking 

Don’t forget your thermos full of coffee either!
