Thoughts? A mysterious bright flash tore across the #Phoenix sky last night, sparking fresh fears of #UFOs and alien invaders. But, it’s likely the fireball was a tiny chunk of space rock burning up in our atmosphere. The remarkable object was spotted by numerous people in the area, with reports streaming in from Arizona and the surrounding states, including #California, #Nevada, #Utah and #NewMexico. The stunning video, captured with a Nest security camera, shows the moment an object appears over the city. It at first appears a tiny orb in the night sky, before quickly blossoming to become a massive flash that illuminates the clouds. The #Leonidmeteorshower is one of several sources of meteoric activity brightening the skies this month. The Leonids will peak on November 17th, with the new moon. While moonless conditions will make for better viewing, the shower itself is not expected to produce a high number of shooting stars. According to NASA, viewers may see up to 10 meteors an hour, around 3:00 a.m. The Leonid meteor shower is born from the debris of comet 55P/ Tempel-Tuttle. ‘Something BRILLIANT just flew across the Phoenix sky around 8:30 this evening!’ the City of Phoenix, AZ tweeted last night. ‘Check out what our Phoenix City Cam Captured! Look to the right of this screen.’ The stunning video, captured with a Nest security camera, shows the moment an object appears over the city. It at first appears a tiny orb in the night sky, before quickly blossoming to become a massive flash that illuminates the clouds. Excited observers were quick to share their own stories, too. ‘We saw the sky light up not far from #Flagstaff!,’ Twitter user Debora Lee Soltez wrote in reply. ‘We were driving north, so didn’t see the meteor, just the sky lighten up then the flash…bright enough to see the trees along the road.’ 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾
Captured a meteor of Leonid Shower of last week. Different hues can be seen in the streak. In the second image the ionization trail is visible formed due to the path of meteor.

3 hours in the freezing cold and didn’t capture any shooting stars in the Orionid and Leonid meteor showers but I did see a lot of them and it was amazing. 💫 • • • #meteorshower #orionidmeteorshower #leonidmeteorshower #shootingstars #stars #nightsky #stanageedge #peakdistrict #peakdistrictphotographer #peakdistrictnationalpark #orionsbelt #constellations
An attempt to capture some stars at the top of the world in Humboldt. // If ya look closely, that streaky blue in the sky might be a meteor I captured by happenstance 😬 (11/19/2017 Leonid Meteor Shower). . . . . #stars #starysky #humboldt #humboldtsky #newmoom #nikon #nikond3000 #night #nightphotography #fireandfriends #naturelovers #meteor #meteorshower #nightsky #leonidmeteorshower #stargazing #stargazer
The approaching nightfall in Joshua Tree is something to take in. Before sunset everyone in the park climbs a top the rocks to watch the yellow sun fall behind the mountains. Within 20 minutes the sky changes to orange, then red, then bright pink, and then purple after that. - Once completely dark, the nightly stars vividly begin to appear! This prior weekend the Leonid meteor was present with 10-15 meteor showers an hour throughout the night. Leonid gets its name from the constellation Leo, where the point in the sky where it radiates the most. The new moon made for a clear evening and amazed at what we saw looking out into the stars!! 🌝✨💫 . . . . #adventurethatislife #hikevibes #adventureawaits #wanderlust #lifeofadventure #outdoorwayoflife #keepitwild #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #dowhatyoulove #livepassionately #seekthetrails #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatreenp #leonidmeteorshower #sunsetchasers #joshuatreesunset #nightsky #nevermissasunset

While chasing the Northern Lights, I was quickly reminded of the Leonid Meteor Shower. #LeonidMeteorShower #Delton #PureMichigan #Meteor #Stars #Lake #Astrophotography #NorthernLights #November #DeltonNOTDenton 👽✨☄️✨👽
"Leonids in Hong Kong" The Leonid meteor shower happens every year in mid-November and it is very easy to observed with the naked eye. I saw it on 18 Nov, 2017 at 01:00a.m. I non-stop to take photographs from 10:30p.m. at night until 01:45a.m. At the moment, I was happy that i saw 6 Leonids with my eyes. The color of Leonids is like the color of our sodium discharge lamps. It's very special. #Leonids #Stars #sodium #spectatcular #HongKong #Saikung #Mountains #November2017 #Leonidmeteorshower #plane #獅子座流星雨2017 #makeawish #flash #Landscape #astrophotography #bns_longexp #best_longexposurepics #superphoto_longexpo #total_longexposure #longexposure_features #longexpo_photogroup #exclusive_world_longexpo #startrailchasers #igworldclub_astrophotography #nikontop #night_captures #night_shots_ #best_expression_night #picturetokeep_night
Can't imagine a more perfect place to sleep and wake up to, nor anyone I'd rather wake up with. While my phone couldn't capture it, watching the #leonidmeteorshower from a ridge of the Santa Lucia range was absolutely breathtaking. The milky way was fully visible and we could see the meteors travelling in all directions. Will attempt to see all meteor showers from here. #paradise #nature #astronomy #partner4life #bushcraft #camping
Leonid Meteor I got up at 2am last Saturday and headed to the mountains. It was 17F up there, good opportunity to test out my new winter gear and see how acclimated I am to the shift in seasons. Fresh snow blanked everything. Hiking up was plenty warm; standing around the tripods is the cold part. At least it wasn’t windy. Leonids were elusive to my cameras, just one capture out of the several I saw. One of them was a real bright burner and included a vapor trail. I try not to be too disappointed when I don’t capture the big ones, it’s really about being out there and seeing them. Captures are just a bonus. I forgot to rig up some heat on my lenses, so they frosted up a couple of times as sunrise approached. It was a quick trip worth the sleep lost! Did you get out and enjoy the Leonid meteor shower? . #leonidmeteorshower #leonid wms_longexpo #longexposure #longexpoelite #weownthenight #astrophotography #sky_sultans #utah #utahgram #utahisrad #utahdotcom #werutah #wowutah #igdsmember #divine_deserts #nightphotography #nightphotography_exclusive #jaw_dropping_shots #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #pictureline #youtah #longexposure_shots #nightscaper #capture_the_universe #ig_killerz #wasatch #wasatchmountains #universe_dope

We had the pleasure of spending the night out under the stars at this remote location under Boot Mesa for the Leonids meteor shower. I was very lucky to catch this little shooting star (tiny streak across the left of the photo). Hours prior to this 3am photo we were caught in a small snow storm and were pretty sure we wouldn’t be able to do Astro photos during this trip. Luckily the universe helped us out! The sky cleared up and the huge gusts of winds stopped long enough for me to get an incredible set. #shootingstar #leonidmeteorshower #bootmesa #monumentvalley #abc15
Fall on the Frio! 🍁 Perfect weekend river campout with the pack! Starriest nights I’ve seen in awhile #leonidmeteorshower
I went out in the very early morning on Saturday to shoot the Leonid meteor shower. I found about the darkest spot one can get to while still keeping the drive reasonable. It was gorgeous. This shot is 81 consecutive 30-second exposures spanning 45 minutes. There are three meteors in it. One on each side and a very faint one a little above the middle tree. While the spot was amazing, some fog formed about halfway through these shots, making things very hazy. Eventually, the temperature dropped to the dew point and everything got instantly wet, including my camera lens. Huge water droplets covered the whole thing, thus putting and end to the shooting (the last 15 minutes of shots were unusable). Besides the three meteors in this shot, there were plenty more. The Leonids did not disappoint. They were actually better than predicted. #leonidmeteorshower #leonids #longexposure #startrails #florida #meteorshower #nightphotography #fog @nikonusa #nikon #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #mynikonlife #nikkor #stars #leonid #shootingstars #shootingstar

Although this is a satellite I was out of this world excited to be able to experience the Leonid meteor showers at Gariep Dam! There were so many stars I did not know where to look as I wanted to take it all in! And yes those blue cloud like blotches are galaxies!!!! MINDBLOWN. We saw about 35 meteors! Thanks mom for waking up at 3am to watch with me! . . . . . . #gariepdam #stars #stargazing #meteorshower #leonid #leonidmeteorshower #shootingstar #satellite
The cost associated with visual observing meteor shower which includes time, missed sleep and sometimes physical suffering.but it totally worth it to stay up all night in freezing cold. #leonidmeteorshower #malhargad
Witnessing a bright meteor, fireball with your own two eyes while wrapped in blankets laying down on caramat. Nothing can replace the thrill. #leonidmeteorshower #canon A very first attempt to astrophotography.. !!
Looking for Leonid meteor shower on a cloudy night. Saw one #nikon #astrophotography #leonidmeteorshower
Beautiful morning on top of Arabia Mountain with Grade 6 to watch the Leonid Meteor shower. #astronomyblock
The Leonid Meteor Shower from Makena,Maui.
Sat by #hadrianswall watching the #leonidmeteorshower and somehow my S8 managed to catch the Constellation of Leo and Orion 😮
WEEKEND!!! We had our own personal hot tub in the middle of nowhere, got to soak under the stars while watching the Leonid meteor shower... It’s been perfect! #hotsprings #ghosttown #weekend #relax #camping #view #highway120 #california #desert #leonidmeteorshower #stars #adventure #explore #middleofnowhere #western
