Leonids return this weekend

On Sunday, Nov. 19th, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle. The result: a shower of Leonid meteors.
Forecasters differ on when the outburst will occur. Estimates range from 0445 UT to 0630 UT on Nov. 19th (11:45 p.m. on Nov. 18th to 1:30 am EST on Nov. 19th). The timing favors western Europe, Africa, Brazil and eastern parts of North America.

How exciting! I didn't see many of the Orionids... if only I still had my telescope! :) With the new moon so close, viewing should be excellent (provided we're enjoying a cloud-free sky).
