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/techniques/leonides-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.
