See shooting stars! Leonid Meteor Shower peaks tonight!!

Tonight will be the peak of the Leonid Meteor Shower, so if you look up and its clear, you will probably see shooting stars! If its not clear, head over to space.com or Slooh Community Observatory for a webcast of the meteor shower!!

The Leonid meteor shower, one of the most celebrated of the year’s annual “shooting star” displays, will peak overnight tonight (Nov. 17) and early Wednesday morning.

You can see the famous Leonids this year even if clouds or bright city lights spoil your skies: The online Slooh Community Observatory will air a free Leonids webcast Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST (0100 GMT Wednesday) featuring live views from locations on four continents. You can watch this broadcast by joining Slooh and also gain access to the observatory’s archive of past shows.

Wired.com reports that tonight will be the peak of the Leonid Meteor Shower! Watch live online here!

If you brave the chilly November air and head somewhere dark tonight, you should get an enjoyable show: the Leonid meteor shower at its peak. But if you live in a city with a lot of light pollution, or you’d just rather stay in the warm comfort of your pajamas, you can watch a live online show (above) from The Slooh Community Observatory starting today at 5:00 p.m. PST/8:00 p.m. EST.

Wherever you are, the best time to view the meteor shower with your naked eye is between midnight and dawn (local time).
