This is another great year for the Leonid meteor shower. Look to eastern sky on the morning hours of both November 17th and 18th, as you may get to view upwards of 25 meteors per hour!

The Leonids are a famous meteor shower and one that can produce some great results!

To help you locate the radiant area of this shower, simply look to the eastern sky, by around 3AM…..The bright object that you are seeing, is Jupiter…….the radiant is right in this general area of the sky.

Here are links about the history of this meteor shower:
