Join us for the peak of the Quadrantids Meteor Shower on the nights of January 3rd and 4th, 2020! This two night campout will feature up to 40 meteors per hour from the lively Quadrantids. The first quarter moon will leave dark skies after midnight which should make for a good show. The party will also feature:

  • Astronomy lectures from Professor Jessica Werk from the University of Washington

  • Nighttime photography tutorials and tips from professional photographer Chris Ewen Crosby

  • Night sky viewing through the huge Meade 14” LX850 telescope

  • Astrophotography tutorials using a DSLR and sky tracker with Samuel Kahn (IG: @alpineastro)

  • SHIFTPOD Lounge — check out SHIFTPODs and see why they’re so awesome

You bring your own car camping setup, food, water, lawn chairs, etc., and we’ll bring a central shade structure, porta-potties, and all the goodies mentioned above. Arrival time is anytime after noon on Friday, January 3rd, and check out time is 1 PM on Sunday, January 5th. This event is being held at our Death Valley Stargazing Camp, which is just west of the national park boundary near the ghost town of Ballarat, California. Click here for a map of the location.

The amazing Meade 14” LX850 will be on hand for deep space viewing
