On the night of the Leonids (last outburst), I was out trying to catch a shhoting star. It wasn't successful, but the place where I was was so nice, along the Odet river. Due to the absence of wind, the water surface was really smooth: a perfect mirror for the narcissistic Orion and its Great Dog.
A nice animation is available from this page: http://photoastronomique.net/photo_us.php?nom=061119_4206
