Jurg Wagener's Sterland Boerdery
Sutherland, South Africa
Sunday november 15th, while observing from Jurg Wagener's Sterland Boerdery (www.sutherlandinfo.co.za) in Sutherland, South Africa, at 23:34 (UTC+2) a brief flash bathed the observing site in white light. It was as if someone fired a camera's flash. Looking up we could see a bright trail which quickly faded, close the Magellanic Clouds.
My camera which I had set up to take fixed tripod exposures throughout the night captured this suspected Leonid.
I will continue to attempt more imaging in the coming nights. As I have limited access to the internet I will not be able to upload pictures to my website until next week.
EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM @ f1.4, ISO1600, 25 seconds, tripod mounted
