Perseid Meteor Shower

Not sure if this is a repost but it seems you can see a meteor shower at night. I've only seen one once a long time ago so thought this might be worth sharing.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

McDonald Park in Abbotsford is a designated Dark Sky Park, situated mid-way between Abbotsford and Chilliwack. It's right next to Sumas Mountain, with the mountain like a huge wall, essentially blocking off the light of Abbotsford to the west, Chillwack to the east and Mission to the North. The views to the east, south & west are unobstructed, perfect for astronomy & astrophotography.

I'll be the guy in amongst the other photographers with a Canon 500mm lens. The other astronomy guys will have the big huge telescopes!

Just got back from a drive around South Langley. Lots of people are hanging out on their cars around the Pacific Truck Crossing and Campbell Valley Park, just sitting on their hoods and staring up at the sky. Sat and watched the sky for about twenty minutes by the new High Point Estates development at 200 St and 8 Ave (holy multi-million dollar homes!). Saw the three planets but no meteors. Oh well. Gonna hang out at Campbell Valley Park tomorrow night with a bunch of buddies and watch the real show.

I won't know until I get there, but any shutter speed over 30 seconds will show star movement, so stay below 30 seconds. I'd use f5.6 or f8 and adjust ISO & shutter speeds accordingly.

I am able to see it on my balcony, and this is near magee. I love watching stuff like this, it's super peaceful and calming, especially after a stressful day.

It may have been. A shooting star will last for only a fraction of a second.
