Lab., Utah State University, during the night of the Leonids storm at 02:10:00 UT.

This airglow image

Jiri Borovicka. Another afterglow spectrum was obtained by
Peter Jenniskens/Mike Wilson. The
meteor was imaged from ARIA and occured at 04:00:29 UT.

persistent train (raw data) of a not quite so
bright Leonid at 03:34:12 UT, some tens of seconds after the train formed.
