It’s Leonid Time Again

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

In just a few days Earth will once again plow through a stream of fragments cast off from comet Tempel-Tuttle. The result: the annual Leonid meteor shower. Unfortunately, this years Leonids are predicted to be quite weak, with only 15-20 per hour. In addition, the moon will interfere with the early stages of the display. Your best bet is to look for the Leonids in the predawn hours of November 17th and 18th, after the moon has set.
