The last time this happened - I was disconnected from the news. I wasn't aware of the upcoming meteor showers. I honestly thought my ch-ch-checkered past had finally caught up to me and I was having the flash backs my 'pharmacist' had warned me about....
So - don't be alarmed the Leonid Meteor shower will begin Saturday night.....
Keep your eyes peeled this weekend: If you're lucky, you may catch a glimpse of fireballs shooting across the night sky as the annual Leonid meteor shower makes its glorious return.
The meteor shower, which contains debris from Comet Tempel-Tuttle, will be visible Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Earth will cross the "thickest part" of the Leonid meteors around 7 p.m. ET Saturday, Space.com reports, though you'll have the clearest view after midnight.
Viewers can expect to witness about 20 meteors per hour during the peak of the show, according to AccuWeather blogger Dave Samuhel.
Your best bet at witnessing a fireball in action will be on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18 — when the shower reaches its peak. You’ll be able to see the most meteors after midnight on Nov. 17.
The shower will be visible across the country, though pollution, weather and the Moon could cloud the sky and prevent you from catching the show.
Since the Leonids will "radiate from the northeast," Accuweather says people in the western and southeastern part of the U.S. will have the best visibility.
