Hi Bill,

I think you can conclusively claim this to be a Leonid meteor spectrum.

The attached composite image was captured by my indoor Leeds_N camera, a mag -1.5 Leonid, confirmed by UFO Analyser. The meteor was recorded as it flashed into the RHS of the field of view. The brighter upper trail is the Leonid, the fainter lower trail is an artefact of the double glazing.
