(meteorobs) early Leonids report from China



The following report came from an amatuer who does not have internet
access. I got these informations from phone call. Chinese amateurs
are organizing a Leonids observation network by themselves, some
amatuers are university students who can access to internet and
can speak English. I'll ask them to send their reports here directy.

I'll make my own observation with several amatuers in Xinglong.

Clear skies, Jin
