The 2001 Leonid Meteor Storm

Three meteors
On November 19, 2001, I went to a dark sweet potato field in Kono-cho in Takefu to watch the meteor storm.
From 2:00 to 3:30, many meteors fell every minute; some were very bright. I was sad because dew got on my camera lens very soon, so I didn't get many good photos.

The Pleiades (my favorite stars), a meteor, and a fence for drying rice.

My photos aren't that great, but I found some beautiful photos on the internet. Click here.
