Star trails Nov, 2001

Leonids near Orion, Nov. 18th,  2001 

Leonid fireball caught on 100 speed film in Nov. 18th, 2001 just before dawn (Unfortunately I had run out of 1000 speed film).  Meteor appeared much brighter than what I caught on film.  Note at least 7 other Leonids in this approx. 5 min. exposure.

Smoke trail from same Leonid fireball above taken a few minutes later.  Trail was visible for at least 15 minutes.
