The Best Way to Watch a Meteor Shower
On any clear, dark night, we can see several meteors per hour. These are random meteors and do not all appear in the same area of sky. Meteor showers occur about a dozen times per year and during these, we may see many times more, sometimes fifty or more meteors per hour. The Leonids have a reputation for being very fast meteors. Astronomershave identified several peaks for this year's shower.
