Kip, You are the only one who replied to counting Leonid meteors this coming November. I once spent a summer in Tacoma and know what you are talking about with the weather up there. If I remember right it rained almost every day while I was there. Very depressing and almost no astromomy happening. Beautiful area though. I'm from the Reno Nevada area and last year I headed south from here for clear sky for the Leonids and like I said I ended up about 80 miles or so north of Las Vegas. Like I said some of the meteors that I saw burnt up between the bottom of the clouds and the ground. Were you serious when you said that there were 125 ground strikes? If so were any recovered and what type of material were they, iron? stoney??? I don't know if this will interest you or not but the place where I watched the shower from last year was directly west of area 51 (Dreamland) and I photographed 3 or 4 (In the strictest sense of the word) U.F.O.'s, Hard to say what they were since that is a test flight area but they were weird moving bright orange lights. I hope you have clear sky for this years shower or hopefully meteror storm. If you would like to contact me other than in this forum my E-mail address is clear skys Starman
