Leonids from Desoto, Missouri

Just got back from an impromptu Leonids party near Desoto, Mo., and I'd guess that for a period around 4:30-5:00 we were getting an average of at least 20 or so per minute over the whole sky, with many stretches of 1 per second. There were occasional bright ones, alot of dimmer ones and maybe 6 or so that were almost point sources. Well worth the trip.

Just my guess...Off to bed...luckily I work nights now...Good night!
