Leonids meteor showers (Liu Xin Yu) is an annual event on middle of November, and this year, according to scientists’ broadcast, would be much more, nice, and spectacularly looking. So I went with three of my colleagues on Tuesday night (early morning of Wednesday) from 1:30am till 6:00am, to the Changi Coast Road to look for opportunity of getting a nice photo to record such a rare enounter. Result is quite disappointed as there are simply too much ambient light. Can’t really find any place in Singapore Island dark enough for such shots. The whole night, we saw about 30 plus flying meteors
Attached is the only one that I can roughly recognize the flying meteor at the lower frame. Notice the bright ambient light effect at the left lower corner.
Should go to some Ulu places in Malaysia next year for such shooting opportunity!
