No Leonids, but…

Driving home late Thursday night, I caught a long streaking meteor through the trees – probably associated with the Leonid shower that peaked early Friday.  Set the GoPro up for long-term exposures and tried to catch another, but only found a few airplanes!

However, this shot does show Orion just rising, Taurus and the Pleaides center frame.  From Taurus, Aries and Triangulum up and right, Perseus up and left.  Pisces high and right (Uranus is in there somewhere, near the tree branch), and Cetus in the dark area above the house, while Auriga and bright star Capella are mid-frame left.  A beautiful night regardless!
