Hello Mr. Erkmen,

Can you please tell me how it was you arrived so quickly to the
conclusion that these objects, which the four separate pilots
saw on November 1st, were Leonids?

The Earth doesn't even enter the Leonid Debris Stream until
November 14th. The total run of the Leonid Streams are from
November 14 to November 20, peaking on the midnight/morning
of the 19th.

Perhaps you should re-open your event file?
