A small Leonid fireball in the wee hours of the morning. Taken from Trá Mór, Spiddal, Galway at around 4:45am – Sunday 18th. One of the few meteors I saw. Pure luck to have caught it as this was the first test shot of the composition. Appeared at first like a very bright shooting star – went about 10 degrees and blew up. A quiet Leonid shower other than this.
Also in the picture are the Gemini twins Castor and Pollux to the top middle, M44 the Beehive Cluster to the lower left of these and the bright star Procyon to the lower right of the twins and Leo the Lion on the left hand side of the pic.
