Leonids 2012

According to Maslov's prediction the Earth should have crossed the stream of Leonid particles in the morning of Nov 20, 2012 from the dust trail leaving the parent comet around year 1400. The meteor activity should be above the sporadic background, with ZHR 10 - 15. Observations of the all-sky system AMOS in Modra and Arbo Mlynany stations confirmed this predictions.
