Leonid meteor shower

At least from Sutherland, the Leonids didn't appear to be in outburst this morning. Ernst and I saw one exceptional fireball (around 01:30 SAST on Nov 18), a horizon-hugger travelling from Cancer to western Andromeda and leaving a persistent trail.

Do check out Victor van Wulfen's lovely Leonid shot taken on the 15th (link to spaceweather.com).

nothing more to see. please move along.
