meteor j2

This faint Leonid meteor, visible in the upper center of the picture, was photographed early in the morning of November 19th, 2002. The foreground was illuminated by the nearly full moon, which is off the frame to the right. The diagonal line in the lower right is not a meteor; it's an airplane vapor trail, also illuminated by moonlight.
