Leonids Meteor Shower 2001

November 18, 2001. I was up all night watching the most spectacular display. There are at least eight 'shooting stars' in this picture (in a larger version, I counted 16). Can you find them all?

    What was your exposure?

    Most of the shots I took that night (nearly six years ago) were between 5 and 10 minute exposures. Since this shot was taken around 3am, I don't know exactly how long I left the shutter open, but I tried for 5-10 minutes.

    There were literally thousands of them that night in the dark, southern Utah sky. Amazing beyond words.
