As seen on Astronomy Picture of the Day the SoBaekSan National Observatory in Korea is photographed during the Leonid meteor shower peak on 2001 November 18. Visible in the background are numerous Leonid meteors bright enough to be seen over background light even during the 40-minute exposure. Local observers reported an average of over one meteor per second during this outburst. Kwon, O Chul - AstroKorea.com/kwon572
