Just one.........so frustrating........the clouds, the clouds hovering over Muntinlupa........luckily the sky opened up for a few minutes.

like what you have said...........lucky! :-) After waiting for the clouds to clear up, I just left the camera in "bulb" mode, bahala na kung ano makunan niya. And there it was, just a tiny speck on the frame. I just cropped it.

Lucky you to be able to capture a shot of one meteor. I saw lots but didn't bother taking a picture. I just wanted to enjoy the sight of them.. Thanks for sharing this, Roland. Richard also has a pic and will post this later.
