Meteor Shower November 2009 PICTURES?

Tonight starts the Meteor Shower for November 2009. My idea was to take pictures.
Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office explains the excitement:

“A remarkable feature of this year’s shower is that Leonids will appear to be shooting almost directly out of the planet Mars.”
“We can predict when Earth will cross a debris stream with pretty good accuracy. The intensity of the display is less certain, though, because we don’t know how much debris is in each stream.”

Me and my family want to see the meteor shower but its very cloudy here.
Did anyone take any pictures of the meteor shower?

NASA is predicting "20 to 30 meteors per hour over the Americas, and as many as 200 to 300 per hour over Asia."

If you want to catch the Leonid meteor shower, the best place to see it is in Asia, but viewers throughout North America should get a peek at the "star" performance.'s recommendation:

The trick for all observers is to head outside in the wee hours of the morning - between 1 a.m. and dawn - regardless where you live.

I didn't find pictures yet but here's a video:
