    Meteor Shower tonight

    One of the best annual meteor showers will peak in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday, and for some skywatchers the show could be quite impressive.

    The best seats are in Asia, but North American observers should be treated to an above-average performance of the Leonid meteor shower, weather permitting. The trick for all observers is to head outside in the wee hours of the morning between 1 a.m. and dawn regardless of where you live.

    The Leonids put on a solid show every year, if skies are clear and moonlight does not interfere. This year the moon is near its new phase, and thus it won't be a factor that detracts from the show. For anyone in the Northern Hemisphere with dark skies, away from urban and suburban lighting, the meteor shower should be worth getting up early to see.

    I will have to check it out on my way to work in the morning, my work yard out in Gold Canyon should be a good viewing point.

    Hey, spread the wealth.



    If I wasn't so tired, I might stay up to see this. I had to wake up at 4:30 am to go to work today. No meteor showers for me.
