The Leonid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend
About 10-15 meteors per-hour will light up the sky this weekend.
Another light show this weekend. November 17 and 18 is the peak of the Leonid meteor shower. The best viewing will be just before dawn, according to EarthSky.org.
The next meteor shower is one that many star gazers call the best of the year. Just before the winter solstice, the Geminid meteor shower will peak December 13-14. This is one of the most reliable meteor showers, and easily seen. The "Gems" create long, bright, streaks in the night sky. The best viewing is around 2AM, with over 100 meteors per-hour, according to Space.com.
