Meteoric Lightshow

Submitted by ub on Tue, 11/17/2015 - 12:02

The Leonid meteor shower, an annual mid-November treat, is set to peak today and tomorrow.

Estimates range from seeing a few meteors up to dozens per hour at the peak. As with most meteor showers, the best time to watch the Leonids is usually between midnight and dawn.

Those in the Southwest will likely have the best view, as clouds from a sprawling storm will likely obscure the show in much of the central and northwestern U.S., Much of the East Coast should have "fair" visibility.
