Oh, and those meteor showers, they actually peak just before dawn on November 18, 2009. Starting in the evening on November 17 and continuing to approximately 8:00 AM on November 18, the meteor shower will be in its most active phase. Scientists predict that large shooting stars will streak across the sky every few minutes at the height of the shower, to take place between 12:30 and 2:30 AM in California.

Because the new moon occurs on November 16th, the sky will be quite dark for the Leonid, making the shower storms more visible to the naked eye and making it possible to see lighter streaks more clearly. Shooting stars will be visible until dawn, at about 5:00 AM.
