At its peak in the sky you will see about 15 meteors per hour, which is considered average.
Then our own Spectrum News anchor Alex Stockwell reported seeing yet another meteor flying through the skies while she was driving to work around 3 a.m. But you don't need to look in the direction of the constellation, because the meteors will appear all across the sky.
The diminutive Comet Tempel-Tuttle will cross Earth's orbit, creating a vaporizing shower of debris in the atmosphere.
The Leonid has a sparkling history, with rates of almost 100,000 meteors per hour recorded in 1833.
The Leonid meteor shower is named after the constellation Leo, which is located in roughly the same point of the night sky where the Leonid meteor shower appears to originate from. The sighting of the fireball, which some said also produced a yellowish-orange glare, was seen across all parts of Texas, from Houston and San Antonio to Dallas.
In 1966, the Leonid shower was actually a meteor storm. This time will be most favorable for observing the meteor shower.
Note that the Leonids - a meteor shower is the second of the month, which reaches its maximum activity 17, 18 November. Although such an event has been associated with the Leonid meteor shower before, the last storm event happened in 2001.
The moon might interfere with viewing while it's out, she said, but you'll still be able to see meteors. I was six-years-old when I saw Saturn for the first time, and I still remember it, so I think it's very important to bring the little ones out as well.
The experts at NASA suggest, "Orienting yourself with your feet towards the east, lie flat on your back, and look up, taking in as much of the sky as possible". The best chance you'll have is late at night after the moon sets.
