Details:
I was shooting lightning over the Gulf from Adelaide around 3am on the 19/11/11, and I noticed the Leonids occasionally traversing the sky. After capturing multiple Leonids on their own, I was able to capture one in the same exposure as several flashes of lightning. The Leonid is about 5 degrees to the left of a bright, shining Jupiter. Definetly my idea of a trifecter.
