Abstract

Results of photographic observations of the 1998 Leonids performed at Modra Observatory (Slovakia) are presented and discussed. During an exposure time of 7 hr 14 min on November 16/17 a total of 168 meteors were recorded. Photographic rates of bright Leonid meteors as well as their magnitude distribution are presented and compared with the results obtained by other techniques. The photographic 1998 Leonids exhibit a maximum at the solar longitude 234.52°, Equinox 2000.0 (Nov. 17, 01:40 UT).
