October 21, 2007 Orionid Meteors

I saw plenty of meteors. Sometimes 3-4 would fall every minute for a minute or two then slow up for a while. Most of the meteors were faint and fast. But one meteor was extrememly bright and left behind a visible smoke trail for 7-8 minutes!


and the visible smoke trail

I put a movie on youtube showing the meteor and the residual smoke trail that persisted. Click here to see that.

Meteor clearly pointing out the Orionid Radiant.


This is obviously not a Orionid but its nice anyway.


A nice bright Orionid Meteor.


This meteor occurred less than 30 seconds after the previous one but came from the opposite direction and appears to be a possible late Draconid Meteor.
