Lattrop, Overijssel, The Netherlands
Normaly I wouldn't send this picture to spaceweather, because it half out of the picture. But after the first leonid picture with the commands of a higher activity with brighter meteors then normal, I like to send this picture to. As member of the Dutch Meteor Society I observed this night with many clouds. But never the less I spotted the higher activity and saw a couple of nice and bright meteors. Please see The results on the IMO site: http: // This Meteor of mag. Minus 4 was very quick, (as a leonid should be) but moved out of the picture :( It was taken with a digtital SLR Olympus E510 on 800 asa.
