I've chosen this night because we can catch near peak Perseid meteor shower and also get our Milky Way/startrail shots in before the moon rises at 2:11am. The sun is scheduled to set at 8:26pm so the stars will be seen around 9:15. The best times for viewing the meteors will be early morning from the northeast.
Click on this link for more information about the Perseids. You can plan to come spend a couple hours then head home or even stay through the evening. Up to you since the National Forest Service does not close the gate.
More to come as we get closer. I just wanted everyone to be able to plan for the evening. As always with astrophotography, we'll have to keep an eye on the weather.
