With winter fast approaching, there aren't many weekends left to enjoy the outdoors without a heavy coat and a warm cup of coffee, which is why you should start making plans right now to see the Leonid meteor shower this weekend.
As NASA explained earlier this month, the Leonids are expected to peak on the night of Friday, November 17th, with the height of the shower expected at around 3:00 AM the following morning.
The meteors are a result of Earth's orbit crossing the orbit of Comet Tempel-Tuttle, which makes its way around the sun every 33.3 years. But increasing cloud cover always poses a risk.
Viewers can expect to see around 10 to 20 meteors per hour, NASA reports, and you won't need a telescope to see them either. Likewise, this year also the Leonid Meteor will be lighting up the night skies with picturesque star shooting spectacle peaking this week. The best time to see the meteor shower will be from midnight to dawn on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18.
Because meteors become visible when they reach about 30 degrees from their radiant point, the Leonid celestial shower will appear sky-wide instead of from the direction of Leo, said Allen. In the past, the Leonids are known for producing "meteor storms" producing up to 1000 meteors per hour! Since, the root of mythical status of the Leonid meteor among the yearly falls was 1833 storms with the count was as high as around 72,000 stars shooting in a night.
