Hi All,
I did a search and was surprised not to find a thread about the 1833 Meteor shower on this board. So I thought I would start one.

A first hand account (http://science.nasa.gov/NEWHOME/headlines/ast22jun99_2.htm)

A depiction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Leonids-1833.jpg)

Anyone seen something similar?

The Nov. 1966 Leonids were pretty spectacular. From the middle of Topeka, Kansas, even with a partial cloud cover, there was not a moment without multiple meteors in the sky.
