Leonids Meteor Shower

I went to the PAGASA observatory in UP Diliman to join my colleagues from UP AstroSoc in observing the Leonids meteor shower.

The inconsiderate news crew of GMA7 and ABS-CBN ruined the experienced by flooding the area with camera lights and flashing the high-beams of their vehicles.

I saw one, maybe two meteors, in two hours.

Yeah, wasn't that awful? How many meteors did you see and how long did you stay?

I saw 10 (two of them fireballs) in a span of 1 hr 45 minutes.
