    Yes, the first one is Naini lake. This was multiple 30s exposures stacked. And these are not shooting starts, but earths rotation causing starts to appear as streaks. Most of them are 10 minute+ exposures

    There is a particular season where-in the earth passes a belt of small comet debris area.Its around october -november every year where in chances if you seeing a meteor is more.Called the leonoids shower.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonids

    Grab you bike and head for the area suitable for star grazing.

    Did not witness it personally but a few years ago the shower was said to be very very spectacular with shooting stars all over the place like cosmic fireworks.
