“ The regular peak of the Leonids is expected in the late evening hours of Nov. 17 into the pre-dawn the following morning. Expect 10 to 15 meteors per hour under ideal viewing conditions. The following night is when we might get an outburst that sees those numbers increase by an order of magnitude, if we're lucky.

To experience the spectacle, you'll want to find an area with a broad view of a cloudless sky and no light pollution. You can find the constellation Leo using an app like Stellarium and orient yourself so Leo's head is in the center of your field of view. Leonid meteors will appear to radiate out from this point in the sky, hence the name. “
