The Stars At Night Are Big and Bright...AND FALLING

The Leonid meteor shower best viewing this year will be in the two to three hours before dawn Wednesday and Thursday, according to the editors of StarDate magazine.

There is always some uncertainty in the number of meteors the Leonid shower will produce, but viewers should expect to see at least 20 meteors per hour if they have clear skies. The nearly full moon will set several hours before dawn, and therefore not wash out any meteors in the hours immediately before dawn.

See y'all bright 'n' early!
