Leonid Meteor Shower Peak

  • November 17, 2012 · 12:45 AM

This is not a traditional "event".  This is a calendar reminder. However if you have an idea where a good place to assemble is, feel free to post below.  I'm toying with driving to Yosemite for the event, myself.

The Leonids are likely to be a whimper... but the Geminids are coming. Besides the Leonids fall on the weekend, the Geminids are during the week in December.


Meteors will appear to stream out of the constellation Leo which rises at 1:00 AM.  The best time to see meteors is from 11:59 PM FRIDAY until sunrise on Saturday.

If you'd like to try to take photos of the meteor shower, please see here for tips:

By the way the TAURID meteor shower peaks this evening November 12th. Usually not many meteors, but they are often fireballs!
