Leonids Trip to Big Sur - Meteors Wide 1

Meteors Wide 1

2001-11-18 02:37:28 PST, EF 17-35 f/2.8 @ 17mm f/2.8, ISO800, exposure time = ?
This might be a 15-minute exposure. The weird pattern is produced by a combination of the earth's rotation and the lens' rectilinear distortion. Everything that doesn't match the general pattern is a meteor. There are at least 6 in this picture.
