Leonid Meteor Shower

For those who have been asking — yes, I did go out to see the Leonid meteor shower.  As predicted, the west coast of the U.S. was not the best place to see the narrow peak of activity, but we did have some some increased activity at the end of Monday night (morning of 11/17).  I put together a composite shot of the meteors caught on camera and a time-lapse video covering most of the night on my astrophotography page.  Don’t miss the separate video of one of the meteors in the corner of the frame which left a persistent smoke trail.

By the way, according to my observatory neighbor Jim, there was also a fair amount of Leonid meteor activity on Tuesday night, but Monday night was better.
