I went out this morning (at 4 AM!) to watch the Leonid meteor shower; ’twas fun, but it paled in comparison to last year’s show, which was simply spectacular.

Even though the gathering was organized by astronomers (from Harvard), there were plenty of inconsiderate people shining their flashlights and car headlights at the people watching the meteors (even people taking flash photographs!), making it pretty difficult to get adjusted to the dark. I did take some pictures (sans flash, of course), and will post them if they come out okay.
