Clouds Rolling In

I wanted to photograph some Leonid meteors on November 18, 2020.  Weather forecast the night before showed that the sky would be clear at the peak time – around 5:00 AM when Leo is high in the sky; so much for forecasts.

A Leonid meteor, near the treeline.

I saw one meteor, headed “north” from Leo, and not captured in a photo. I caught one in a photo before the clouds covered the sky; here’s the photo, and the meteor is visible in the video at about the 7.5 sec mark – above the treeline just before a faint aircraft flies from right to left across the video.
