The Geminid meteor shower peaks this Thursday night-Friday morning. Not the Leonids, but should be 100-150/hour and the moon is not a problem.

Any idea of the GMT peak time, approximately?

Peak is about 0400, but you should be able to see some earthgrazers starting about one hour after sunset.

Thanks - it's been clear here the last couple of nights, so no doubt it'll be overcast tomorrow. In any case, stuck in a city I won't see much...

It has been raining here the last couple of nights, so no doubt it will do so again tomorrow night. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
