    Back from Changi Beach.

    Saw a total of 5 shooting stars (they prob entered our atmosphere?).

    Quite bright and lasted for no more than 2 seconds. Didn't manage to capture them though =\

    The Last one is the longest that was captured. I used a string of 30secs exposure. Taken with my 16mm f2.8 on the 900. I could only spot the streaks after downloading. The moon light is bright hance hiding most of the actions.

    Here's something that made me feel silly last night.
    http://www.sci-ctr.edu.sg/ssc/virtua...nt=140&cat=271
    If you look at the star map, Perseus isn't actually visible till about 4 or 5am in the morning. Which means, at best, we're catching the edges of whatever shower there was...

    There are similar celestial event throughout the entire year ranging from Quadrantids in January, Lyrids in April, Eta Aquarids in May, Perseids in August, Orionids in October, Leonids in November and Geminids in December.

    The maximum ZHR every year of any meteor showers is probably the Perseids (a ZHR of anywhere between 100 to 120) BUT every now and then the Leonids actually produces a METEOR STORM with a peak ZHR of anywhere between 500 to 1000 sometime in the middle of november. Go figure.
