The Leonid Meteor shower peaks this Sunday; looks to be the best of the year

Universe Today is reporting that the Leonids will peak between 11:45PM EST on 11/18 and 1:30AM 11/19. The Earth’s position favors Western Europe and the Eastern US, but it’s definitely worth a check, even on evenings of the 17th and 19th. Look toward Leo for the point of origin of the shower, but the meteors could appear anywhere in the sky. I’ve already seen a few!
