Assuming that you may have actually meant what you said, you can
photograph asteroids.

Some asteroids approach the earth fairly closely. The brightest may
even achieve naked eye visibility, or possibly I mis-recollect.
Back issues of Sky & Telescope magazine at your local library will
provide a wealth of information about asteroids, observing
asteroids with small telescopes, and photographing asteroids, most
likely by using a small telescope.

Unfortunately, for wow-factor pictures of asteroids, you have to be
there. There are some photos in back issues of Sky & Telescope
taken from spacecraft which have approached asteroids.

I'm talking about recording a meteor shower....which is what the original poster meant.
