Thought I'd share this image I captured last Tuesday morning of a Leonid streaking through the constellation Leo Minor. I was suprized at how well it turned out despite the bright moon and thin clouds overhead. I cropped the original shot and rotated it so North is up, roughly. Technical data 35mm SLR w/ 28mm lens on tripod. Exposure was fairly short (1 or 2 minutes) on Fuji Superia 800 print film. The green color seems consistent with what I saw; I did see one with a distinct violet flash earlier in the evening.

Clear Skies,
