How To Catch The Leonid Meteor Shower

While it's starting to get chilly outside and you may be tempted to stay indoors, November has one more celestial trick up its sleeve. November 17 marks the peak of the annual Leonid meteor shower. The display is produced from the dust trail of Tempel-Tuttle, a periodic comet that swings around the sun every 33.3 years. It's called the Leonid shower because the meteors appear to roar from all directions out of the constellation of Leo the Lion, says MNN. To watch the shower find a dark place and be patient, giving your eyes plenty of time to adapt to the dark skies.
