    Are You Getting Excited About The Meteor Shower That’s Fixing To Happen In A Couple Of Hours? I am getting geared up and cameras are fully charged

    Flying Balls Of Light? Hi, last night at about 11 PM I was outside and in the sky I saw a group of flickering lights traveling at a fairly high speed, going from West to East. They we’re pretty high up in the sky too, at first I thought it was a falling star so they we’re about as high as the stars. Within about 20 seconds they had passed over my house already. There was about 40 of them, they weren’t very big either from where I was, about the size of marbles and they we’re shifting around as they we’re traveling. Does anyone know what this might be?

      From Yahoo news, today:

      Washington (AFP) – A mysterious meteor shower late Friday and early Saturday is captivating countless astronomers and amateur skywatchers with the promise of a falling-star show unlike any ever before seen.
      The first appearance of a meteor shower known as Camelopardalids could start for North American viewers at early as 10:30 pm Friday (0230 GMT Saturday), astronomers say. It should be visible in the United States and Canada, anywhere with a cloudless night sky.

    Photographing Meteor Shower With Nikon D40? I want to be able to get some good pictures of the meteor shower tonight, but I have no experience with my nikon d40 at all. I’ve only had it for a month, so I barely know anything about using it properly. Can someone explain in detailed steps how to set my camera to the proper settings? Thanks!

    Do I Need A Permit To Enter Joshua Tree National Park At Night For Star Gazing? I am planning to look for the Camelopardalids meteor shower this Friday (05/23/2014) night. Joshua Tree National Park seems to be the best place in Southern CA to do star gazing. But I don’t have a campground reservation there for that night. Do I need a permit to visit the park at night (after 9 pm) and stay there till 2 am or 3 am? Also, what is the best place within the park for star gazing?
    PS: I am driving there in my car with a friend. Also I hope they do not close the exits to the park at night?

    • Curator says:

      Why is this under the Canadian section?

      Anyways… when I was down there I didn’t get a permit and no one ever said anything. Furthermore, Joshua Tree is really cool, but I think that area in the desert east of Barstow is even better for star gazing… just my opinion. It’s not as cool in terms of geology but it’s pretty sweet for star gazing.
