    Exclamation Leonid Meteor Showers

    Anybody keen to take pics of bits of rock streaking thru the skies leaving fiery trails?

    If so, you might want to peruse this site for tips :-

    http://www.luminous-landscape.com/te...des-2002.shtml

    And check with local astrophotography sites/ppl on when/where is the best time & place in Singapore to take such pics.

    TASOS (The Astronomical Society of Singapore) has an outing planned for 19th November to McRitchie Reservoir area between 7:30pm - 9:30pm, so presumably this is a good time to catch the meteor shower. Note that TASOS outing is for their members only and I am just regurgitating stuff I found on their webpage. Please contact TASOS if you are interested to go.

    wanna gatecrash macritchie?
    peak is estimated at about 9.30 pm tuesday night 19/11/02.
    on proper skies, about 30-60 meteors for the WHOLE NIGHT only.
    about 3-6 per hour. terrible.
    on our skies, don't know.

    or fly to central europe, good view there, heh.
