Even at the edge of the highest light pollution level in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area (Bortle scale 8-9), the all-sky camera captures 16 of the brightest the Leonid meteor shower has to offer. The distribution of meteors is evenly split from 3 a.m. to 5 a.m. local time. The Leonid meteors are more numerous, faster, yet not as spectacular as the recent Taurid meteor shower (November 12th). All-sky camera details: PC164C b/w video camera, 1.6mm Rainbow lens.
