There are at least half a dozen shooting stars in the clip below, a time-lapse sequence shot between 3:15 and 7:30 AM.  The one above, the brightest, occurs 44 seconds into the clip.  Smaller ones occur at 00:19 near the center of the frame and at 00:23 in the lower middle part of the frame [these may be hard to see at the resolution displayed here].  In addition, various aircraft and satellites can be observed especially between 00:58 and about 01:12.
