Leonids in Hlohovec was observed in contrary conditions. Weather was changable and it was possible to observe only through gaps in the clouds. Moon was just one day before full phase, thus we were allowed to observe the brighter meteors only. ZHR was computed, but relative maxima occured approximately at 3:40 UT , 4:05 UT and 4:25 UT. The most remarkable maximum was at 4:05 UT. Photographic observation was performed during following intervals:
