Leonids Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight (November 17) – Space.com | Ad On Picture

On the evening of Thursday, November 17 leading to the morning of Friday, November 18, 2022 Leonid Meteor Shower will reach its peak, offering skygazers willing to brave the biting cold an increased opportunity to spot streaks of light or the odd fireball Earth.

The Leonids, which last from November 6 to November 30 this year, are considered to be one of the most productive meteor shower experienced by earth. During Friday’s peak Leonid meteor production rate, the best way to see the Leonids is to look for the shower’s radiant point, located in the constellation Leo. Be sure to keep your gaze up close constellations since meteors farther from the radiant tend to have longer trains (glowing debris trails) and are easier to spot.
