Don't miss it! :P the meteors with be radiating from the constellation Leo, hence the name. There is is usually a dozen or more meteors an hour for an unfortgetable show.

Thanks for the heads up, Menikmati... the Moon won't be rising until pretty early on in the morning either, so you'll have dark skies.

Good luck everyone - don't forget to post your results! :D

This year the Leonids will be a bit different; no chance of a meteor storm but it just could be a much better than usual display on the morning of the 19th - http://www.space.com/spacewatch/leonids_20...ews_031017.html (http://www.space.com/spacewatch/leonids_2003_news_031017.html)
